Hampshire LUG recommended software

In 2006 Hampshire Linux User Group voted on the recommended software for a new Linux user. I collated the results.

The original question was:

"Help us ease the pain for new users by building a list of software the LUG thinks is friendly. Tell us what you would pick from these categories for a new user"...
