Re: [school-discuss] Open Source CD distribution

What  about a simple basic set to begin with... sort of the equivalent of a movie trailer for software.

There could be an office package for windows, linux, mac...
A multiplatform drawing/paint app (insert name)
etc etc...

Sorry... marking test papers... brains on a single track right now... COFFEE!! ;)

I am working on putting my own collection together.  However, it'll
never be done in time for the talk at the end of the month.  Wanted to
figure out the most useful CD collection already available until I can
get my own more polished.  Am building my own collection from scratch
(compiling it all myself) so I can fine tune and debug things.  I'm
also creating my own build tools so I can automate the build
processes.  It'll be cross-platform, so it will hopefully work for
building programs on at least Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and possibly
even DOS.
