For bringing other applications to the surface, I've made a list of all the entries on the ftp site and exported to a text file - over 225,000 lines long :0
So I've removed games and any pre-Amiga titles (eg, C64 software) and now I have a list about 25,000 lines long. If anyone wants to suggests removals I've put the reduced list here: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/11767758/
The shorter the better because I plan to try as many as possible.
But keep the suggestions coming, especially if you think the title is something that someone could use for practical/educational purposes today.
