At this point, I think it would be enough to just mention that the
general class of applications is available maybe with the exception of
Firefox and OpenOffice, as they are populer enough among people not
familiar with GNU/Linux already.


1. The GNOME and KDE desktop environments, as well as several other
graphical desktop environments and window managers.

2. Firefox, Thunderbird and several other web browser and email

3. The OpenOffice, GNOME Office and KDE Office suites.

4. Image, photo, video and audio players and editors, as well as
numerous other graphics and multimedia applications.

5. Instant messaging, internet chat, voice over IP and file sharing
clients and servers.

6. Server suites including Apache, Samba, PostgreSQL, MySQL etc.

7. Developments tools and IDEs for all popular languages including
C/C++, Java, Python, Perl [mention Mono/C#?]

[Dunno about Docbook/LaTeX, GNU/Linux users will expect them anyway?]
