This is good, Steve. I think combining this with what you had

"Quantum GIS (QGIS) is designed to be a Geographic Information System 
(GIS) built for Linux/Unix. QGIS will offer support for vector, raster 
(still to do), and database formats.


   1. Support for spatially enabled PostGIS tables
   2. Support for shapefiles
   3. Identify features
   4. Display attribute table
   5. Select features (shapefiles only)"

will make for a good package description.
