    FLOSS CD

    http://www.theopencd.org

    Just came across this CD of apps that may be of use to people that issue thier students with free and open source software to use at home - as we do here. The CD has a live [bootable O/S] CD of Ubuntu with the apps installed too so you can give the apps a trial run without installing.

    I thought it was good anyway

    As someone who's trying to get into Linux, I downloaded it and had a go this morning. Very nice.
