I am updating the Free Software for Schools publication (www.lulu.com/
content/286873) for the upcoming NELS/FOSSED conferences
(www.fossed.com) and I thought before I put the final wraps on, I
would ask the people on this list for their top recommendations. The
current version has about 140 programs listed and the most famous
ones are already included: Open Office, Abiword, all the edu.kde.org
apps, GIMP, Scribus, Audacity, Blender, Inkscape, MythTV, Celestia,
Stellarium, NVU, Drupal, Moodle, Tuxpaint and Tuxtype, GCompris....etc
But some other applications are not in this 2+ year-old publication:
Scratch, Alice, OpenBiblio, Koha, Dia, Thunderbird, Firefox,
Freemind, DansGuardian, Nagios, Zimbra...and ???
So I am curious what others people think should be included. Your
suggestions may already be in there but I would hate to miss a new,
cool program or perhaps a classic that I just overlooked.
