Everyone knew this was coming but its out now: http://docs.google.com/default.aspx?action=new_presentation&hl=en
Nifty. Was able to import a ppt file perfectly and the email option works too.
Don't see using this for work though because companies do not want their info on the interwebs.
No animation / multimedia support (seeing how its google "beta", might as well add "yet")
Seems like a good thing for someone wanting to use the AJAX OS and everyone on the cloud. Unless they provide an option to spit out a pptx file (its not that difficult, people already do this with the OOXML project), or other formats in and out, not sure how useful this might be.
Are you saying Google Presentations was written in ASP.NET?
I believe Writely also started out as being written in ASP.NET. Then Google acquired it and it became Google Docs. Can anyone confirm that it's since been rewritten in another language? I wonder if that is what Google will do with Presentations as well.
