Maybe you are remembering the email discussion titled:
[OSGeo-Discuss] Will there be an OSGeo Desktop shootout at FOSS4G 2010? 


As a contribution to this thread, the LiveDVD project can contribute to 
this shootout, in that we have many of the desktops already packaged, 
along with 1 page descriptions of each project.

And I'd love to include documentation or tables into the liveDVD which 
help users select between different applications.
