Yes, you can't replace PP. As for presentations - Scala is e.g. definity much better, smoother, everything than PP .... But, as for Rebol, I think that you could use some kind of Encapped player app, featuring presentation scripts/dialects .... that way you could distribute your presentations ... If you want other ppl (business ppl) to see your presentation though, you are right that you would be better with PP probably, as nearly every office owns MSOffice already. As for multimedia presentations (Scala), Rebol doesn't provide us level of Scala presentations smoothness/quality, and multimedia is not RT's priority for near future, so .... -pekr-
