Huckster. From the webpage.
"Huckster diverges from the way other presentation programs work based on a few principles:
1. Life's to short to spend it fussing with formatting. This program handles the formatting for you. If you don't like it, use StarOffice or Powerpoint.
2. If you type a character into a slide, it should appear on the slide. As you type more text into a slide, text point sizes are progressively reduced.
3. Most folks serious about putting together good looking slides use industrial strength art tools from companies like Adobe and Corel. Therefore, this presetation program has no art tools of its own and presumes that you'll use one of these other tools and drag-and-drop images into the presentation.
4. Content and Style should be seperated as totally as possible.
5. Transitions are evil. "
