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.
