Worst Sun Presentation Template
By alexismp on janv. 09, 2006
I'm now in California for a Sun-Internal training.
The journey started with an early wake-up, partly because the taxi driver wanted to ride during the night fare or else he "had other customers" (on a Sunday morning, right!). Even being there three big hours in advance didn't get me a better seat than the one before the last in the plane (upgrade to business sounds impossible nowadays given my low traveling profile). It took me an hour to find a power plug in the airport (why do they hide them all in a place with so many laptops around?), the plane was almost two hours last taking off and it felt little a roller coaster for most of the 11-hour flight (didn't sleep for a minute) with no iPod which I had left home... But sometimes, little annoyances like these can't change your mood
Having nothing better to do waiting at the airport, I decided to look at old Sun presentations, partly to see how much had not happened as planned. Seeing all those slides made me want to gather a set of templates used across the years (one of the most important feature I look for in a presentation tool is how easy it is to change the template without messing up all the slides formating). For every name and branding change, Sun had presentation template changes even more frequently. Here's a set from older the most recent :
Probably one of the oldest I found
Last century template
Old but good looking
We're the dot!
Even before the iPlanet branding
Don't you love the tag line?
Take it to the nth!
I kinda liked this one
My personal ugliest template
Really an improvement
The current one, I kinda like it
So, which one is your personal ugliest?

Ok, now back to my training. A little more useful than this...
