A great way to try out open source GIS software

I just came across an email thread on the QGIS email list that mentioned OSGeo-Live. This is a “self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Xubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything”. Worth exploring if you are looking for new great geospatial software.
