Tuxpaint (www.tuxpaint.org)
VLC (www.videolan.org)
Gcompris (gcompris.net) (tuxpaint is included as a package within gcompris)

Edubuntu (!)

And for Windows, you can also check out 'free' but not 'Free', i.e. gratis
offerings like
Ray's Letters and Numbers (
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/RayLec/lettersa.htm)
Letter Sounds (www.yourchildlearns.com/*letter**sounds*.htm)
Learn Letters (www.yourchild*learn*s.com/*learn**letters*.htm)

The suggestions above are largely for young children: pre-schoolers,
nursery, kindergarten, what have you.  I would love to see somebody develop
Free / Libre versions of the last three packages, esp. for Linux.
