This is hard to answer without first knowing what the people in the
company need or want to do. :)

Not being a traditional 'office worker' type of person myself
(everyone shut up :) ), I rarely have need for a word processor or
spreadsheet, for example.

I find this conversation quite engaging, though... if you can think of
some more specific hypotheticals, it'd be nice to mull around in my mind. :)
I enjoy teaching, and enjoy using Linux, and therefore enjoy teaching
Linux.  Maybe coming up with a broader-scoped LUGOD meeting topic (or
perhaps another class with DCN) on the subject of "Linux in Business"
would be nice.

Actually... one thing I know RoseLUG tries to focus on is just that.
Unfortunately, their mailing list is quite dry.  (A few messages a 
month... and it's a general discussion list, just like our 'vox' and
SacLUG's 'lug-nuts'!)

Thinking about the suggestion Steve Wormley gave me about creating a
mailing list for members of all three LUGs to participate in... although
that was for technical discussion, not general banter, like this...
