Hello, I have just checked that my first post to this list was more than 10yrs ago (end of 2002). Then I was working on some full-sized books and ended up with LyX/LaTex. Later, had few attempts to switch to ConTeXt, but as a result I reduced even my LyX/LaTeX usage and was using light markups like rst/AsciiDoc for my writing needs without higher-quality typesetting.
Yesterday I had to help my wife to put together some medicine-related presentation for the meeting at her working place and used LyX/LaTeX with Beamer class. Considering that there might be need to do such thing more often in the future as well as possibility that I might have to produce lot of presentations for my public lectures/workshops based on philosophy (iow. no need of math), I am again in the position to consider ConTeXt, but this time mostly for presentations. I'm (well) aware of ConTeXt's advantage in the sense of being complete package without clashing of different packages which usually happens in LaTeX world, I wonder if someone can give some piece of advice to learn and/or switch ConTeXt for preparing presentations instead of learning lot of LaTeX packages? How does ConTeXt compare for the purpose vs LaTeX/Beamer? I'm on Linux (running Debian Sid) and use Vim as my primary editor so wonder if ConTeXt users recommend to e.g. prepare drafts of their documents like rst/AsciiDoc/markdown and then convert them into ConTeXt with tool(s) like Pandoc?
