I know this post is a little off-topic as it isn’t a tutorial (but hey, you’ve already got one today!). This is a project that some great local guys have been working on that I wanted to share with everyone reading the blog. Free software alternative so XP & OSX all compiled into a single CD. You should definitely check this out and share it with friends / family that are still using “the other OS”.
The 2007.01 release of Software for Starving Students is now available for download. http://softwarefor.org/downloads.html
“Software for Starving Students is a free collection of programs organized for students (but available to anyone). We’ve gathered a list of best-in-class programs onto one CD (one disc for OS X, one for Windows), including a fully-featured office suite, a cutting-edge web browser, multi-media packages, academic tools, utilities and more.”

Please help us out by seeding the torrent, spreading the word, and burning copies for your friends and family. (Nothing spreads holiday cheer like good, free software.)
This is great!!! It’s a good, solid collection. I’ll start downloading it tomorrow. Thanks. Saw your post on the planet.
isagani – thanks for the support there too. I know these guys have been working hard on it!
