Linux for Religious Orgs

For those of you interested in sharing Linux with your churches, I've written a book, "Penguin in the Pew", which helps church leaders understand Linux, free software, and how these can be used in a church setting. Although I didn't know about BibleTime when I wrote it, I will include BibleTime in my revision.

"Penguin in the Pew" has been downloaded well over 1000 times in the first month. It has been used by IT pros and pastors alike from around the world. It's getting great reviews, thus far. I think most folks here would be interested in the book, and may even want to share it with their churches.

Our church website now has a link to BibleTime and The Freely Project, another site with a focus on helping the church understand Linux. Visitors can also download the CHurch ADministration DataBase (CHADDB) MySQL back-end files as our church's contribution to free software.

I would like to know of any other software projects for Linux that can be used by Christians and/or the Church for inclusion in my next revision - hate to leave out anyone!blushing
