MS Office is widely used. Scratch, Scribus and OpenProj are probably the most popular FOSS we run. Now and again we look at what else would be of use and make that available. Some also learn some HTML, PHP and MySQL and look at operating systems in later years.

It is good to introduce people to FOSS early on so it's great to be in a position with the ability to help do this.

I use Arch on my work computer with Windows in a VM on a second screen. Our Intranet web server also runs Arch.
