Hi Franck!
I think your e-primer gives a good introduction into the world of FOSS4G
- thank you!
If you're searching for a very comprehensive overview of GIS-related
open source projects, have a look at freegis.org [1].

Currently there are 376 listed projects:
* category software: 325
* cat. Geo-Data: 23
* cat. Documents: 19
* and 9 other projects.
