comment Is it possible to have a page with a transparent background?
You can piece together a reasonable representation in InDesign. Not sure about Scribus. Any app with layers and layer blending can at least give you an indication. That's still better than designing on white :)

Unless you activate overprinting on the other layers. You have to be sure the printer knows what you're up to but, even a bad facsimile is better than looking at it on white.

comment What's the pixel dimensions of a powerpoint slide for Open Office / Libre Office Impress?
As e100 pointed out above, thankfully you can choose the aspect ratio now. You can actually create the image to fit the screen. Personally, I just use Google Presentations now anyway.

comment What wire-framing tool can I use that is focused on Android and iOS apps?
"Free" is often not "best". Have you looked into Axure? It's a solid wireframing and lo-fi prototyping tool. If you need to do mockups, I'd go with Illustrator, Fireworks, or (if you must stay free) Inkscape.

But the question remains, did Adobe create a scientifically accurate model?
