That is an excellent suggestion! With the tight budget constraints we have right now, it is easy to get caught up in the "free" part. Focusing on the quality programs available with the $0 cost to "sweeten the deal" sounds like a good approach. I'll sleep on it and do a revision tomorrow.

I'm working on the abstract for my proposed presentation at CUE 2011 in Palm Springs in March. The filing deadline is Monday, but I was hoping to put it in tomorrow morning since we will be traveling Sunday. They asked for an outline of the presentation in the abstract, that is why it is in that form. I want to focus mainly on Sugar and SoaS for this talk but still put in stuff about OLPC and volunteering.
My main suggestion would be to change the focus from "free educational software", e.g. no cost, to the benefits of the Sugar Learning Platform and the other packages you're highlighting as quality educational tools in and of themselves. I don't know if this makes sense, but I feel that promoting free software as no cost cheapens it to a degree.
