While I'm glad to see this list, I'm sure are plenty more applications that could be added to this list. There's such a rich diversity of open source applications available. Perhaps next year they could bulk up the list to the top twenty?

If you know a good open source education application, please post it in the comments below. Maybe we can build on this list and help a few parents out there. Thanks in advance for all suggestions.
