TeX and LaTeX
From the TeX FAQ:
`TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Knuth, who says in the Preface to his book on TeX that it is "intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics".'
LaTeX is a popular TeX macro package. For an up-to-date implementation of TeX, LaTeX and related programs for Windows (all current variants) try MikTeX. Many useful TeX resources can be found TeX Users' Group (TUG) site. Another good place to find help is through Hildebrand's TeX Resources page.
Beamer is a LaTeX class that allows you to produce slide presentations (like PowerPoint) in a LaTeX environment. It is included with the MikTeX distribution.
