Typically in the past we had been handing out TheOpenCD which has some 
edu software on it, although tuxpaint seems to come and go.

Here's my research on the issue in general from a few months ago.
F Suite CD - Mac(Intel & PPC versions) FOSS - www.freesumg.org - 0709
The Open CD - Win - FOSS - http://theopencd.org/ - 0709
Software for Starving Students - Mac & Win - Free(OSS and Freeware) - 
http://softwarefor.org/ - 0709
OSSWIN - Win - FOSS -http://www.ttcsweb.org/osswin-cd/ -ver1.8  on 0709
Open Source Free CD - Win/Bootable Slax LiveCD -Free(OSS and Freeware)- 
http://www.opensourcefreecd.org/ -4PointZero

I haven't looked at it for a few months though, if one of those looks 
good for this audience let us know and we can focus on that.
