Yep, that's what I thought :-) As long as I (as the speaker) control the 
computer and switch through the pages, I can stick to the concept and do 
not have to skip or jump back.

In our church I have seen that they use two-screen presentations for 
example for the songtexts or the preacher. Some guy sits somewhere with 
a laptop and has a screen with thumbnails, the beamer shows the selected 
page. Whenever there are sudden decisions (e. g. the band decides to 
sing part 2 again or the preacher says "would you show that picture 
again..."), it's just a mouseclick to hit it.

As far as I know those guys, they'll know nearly nothing about 
OpenSource or anything from the Linux world, so their solution will be 
based on Windows and that means Powerpoint. But I had this hope that at 
least Adobe Reader under Windows has the capability to support two screens.
