as promised here are the slides of my talk. ODPs are easier to
cut-and-paste, have vector graphics and high resolution jpgs etc. If
you only care about the links, PDFs are much lighter and more portable
(as the name says :-)
Other than that, they are the same.

This year talk:
http://www.javacorner.org/blug/Yellowstone.pdf 3.1MB
http://www.javacorner.org/blug/Yellowstone.odp 7.2MB

2009 talk (I couldn't find it anywhere else on the web):
http://www.javacorner.org/blug/supercomputing.pdf 5.7MB
http://www.javacorner.org/blug/supercomputing.odp 8.1MB

Let me know if you have any questions!
