What about a "feature" CD? I mean, one live CD with the basics and a  
few showcase apps (OpenOffice, Firefox, Evolution, etc.) and another  
one with more specialized applications. There could even exist  
different feature CDs for developers (working gcc, Eclipse,  
GNUstep, ...), entertainment (Photo editing, video cutting, ...) and  
others.

The advantage of an feature CD is, you don't have to look up what  
applications are recommended and don't have to download/install them  
one by one. Just put the CD in after the first boot off the hard disk  
and go with a known, useful set of applications.
