Cameron the live dvd tutorial I ran at FOSS4G is available:
- it covers as many applications as I could get to work
- uses the same sample data in each case (showing how to make the same
map in uDig, gvSig, OpenJUMP, QuantumGIS etc...)
- uses the osgeo workbook template (open office)

The only odd man out is Grass - Hydrologis put together the sample and
did not use the same source data as the other applications.

PDF is available here:
- http://snapshots.dist.codehaus.org/udig/livedvd/

I have shared the original open office documents with you via dropbox;
you may wish to convert to html for the live dvd (or continue to use
PDF and the osgeo branding?)
