Apple's Keynote beats Microsoft PowerPoint for ease of use.

A Boston Herald reporter writes: "After 15 minutes with Keynote I found I was able to make better-looking presentations that run a little more smoothly than the Microsoft presentations."

"Apple programs are designed to let people who are less than experts do an awful lot easily. Keynote fits this model," he explains.

"The entire package is simplified by Apple's less-cluttered interface," he adds.

However, "when it comes to range of tools and flexibility, PowerPoint wins. With its multiple tablets and huge range of options, the program lets an experienced user do all sorts of things".
