Tonight I am going to be pitching open source products to a local
community college for use in their community classes.  (think grandma's
and grandpa's).  

For starters I know I will be pitching openoffice and gimp.  I may touch
on Linux in general.  Are there any other products that anyone thinks I
should push?

I was also thinking of mentioning tuxpaint and offering it as something
fun for parents to do with their children for a night...and at home
too.  I could see my wife and I going to the class with our kids and at
the end giving all the parents a gnuwin CD so that they could install
Tux Paint (and all the other open source software available on it).
