[FredLUG] Open Source usability for the win

My 13 year old daughter has been working on a presentation for 4H in
Google Presentations. When she tried to download it on Sunday she kept
getting error messages, so to be safe I suggested that she download Open
Office and do the presentation in it so we could sure she had access to
it tonight. I told her to download it and install, and then I'd help her
move the presentation over.
About an hour later I realized I had never heard from her so I checked
on her. She had the presentation moved over, and was busy adding images
to it. She was also playing around with text color, animating the text,
and those other nifty "features." This is someone who 1 hour previous
had never ever used Open Office or Powerpoint. Even better, in her final
presentation she kept it clean and simple. No moving text, no animation,
Apparently usability for a beginner is no longer an issue.
