The short (and not terribly useful) answer is: it's more recent :) 
I have hope that this will become a very demo-oriented product,
incorporating tutorials and documentation from the various projects so
that it can be run off-line and still be useful.  My target is mostly
for conferences and workshops, since that's when I really feel the need
for something like this, but hopefully it will be more broadly
applicable.  I haven't used Ominiverdi's cd, so I can't really comment
on the contents.

Cameron is setting me up with access to the OSGeo downloads site, so
once we have a cut I'll be posting it there.
