OSGeo-Live (now at version 6)

Now that OSGIS is an acceptable alternative to proprietary offerings we need to be aware of 'the other' tools and libraries that rarely get a second look against the likes of QGIS, Geoserver and PostGIS.

I'm referring to Cameron Shorter's excellent OSGEO Live DVD, a ready compiled .iso image which can be copied and run from a usb drive or DVD and used without installation on the host computer. It is worth checking this presentation for a comprehensive selection of Open Source Mapping Tools.
