I second this... I've not done a presentation in anything but Scribus 
for years.

You can include transition effects etc in PDF.


Seeing my colleagues here struggle with Office/OpenOffice "helpfully" 
changing the layout depending on the machine which opens the files.

Once in PDF format the presentation displays exactly the same. I do 
recommend using Adobe Reader for the demo/presentation.

Hope that helps,
