Question Best of Windows Open Source Freeware...

I plan on attending a picnic with a bunch of fellow anglers from a fishing forum in a bit more than a month from now. Around that forum I'm known as one of the more computer-literate folks, and as such I was pondering bringing CD-Rs with the best of Windows Open Source Freeware for free handouts. So many of them could benefit from free software (especially the spell checker in Open Office) and I think that it'd be a great way to indoctrinate them into this world. Most of them aren't ready for Linux just yet, and I don't want to become the tech support guy for all of them.

At one time I read about a collection or two that someone had put together, but I'm not finding them at this time. Does anyone know of a collection that has already been put together, so that I can just burn the images to CD? If not, what programs would you recommend for just such a CD? I'm thinking Open Office and Gimp for starters, but would like to maximize the offerings.

Thanks for the help, folks.
