Same here.  When I presented at SCaLE last month, the MacTech conference 
in November, an archaeology symposium the year before, and every Rev 
conference I've attended, I always made my slide shows in Rev.

I find most presentation tools too cumbersome to work with, but with Rev 
I not only get them exactly how I want them but I can also automate some 
of their construction from my outlines in ways that would be way too 
complicated to attempt in PowerPoint of OpenOffice.

At SCaLE someone asked me what I made my presentation in, and I told him 
I was able to make the presentation and the authoring system to build it 
all within three hours using a tool called LiveCode. :)
