While I fully support the idea of FOSS software, and use many, many FOSS
titles myself, I haven't had much luck with wink. I've used various demo
tools since 1995, including Demo It!, Macromedia Director, and Qarbon
ViewletBuilder, so maybe I was coming in with some unrealistic expectations;
someone who hasn't used demo-creation software before may have a better
experience than I did.
