Amrory is excellent.  I have used it for a while now, had a first class experience.  The engineer responds to questions about it and is very helpful.  Thoughroughly recommended.

Without reading all the previous 50 pages, I think the original post can be summarized and updated as follows:

1. Get clean OS image, verify MD5 hashes. Can be Windows or Linux or any other OS.
2. Install on freshly formatted computer. Boot.
3. Install Bitcoin client. Run.
4. Bitcoin client will make a wallet.dat with 100 addresses.
5. Close Bitcoin client. Wait for it to completely close, or just shutdown.
6. Install pywallet and extract keys from new wallet.dat. You can also extract the private keys.
7. Copy wallet.dat and / or the plain text public and private keys and RAR them and ZIP them. You might want to make multiple copies of the same file on the same disk and also on multiple cards, USB flash drives, SD cards, and paper printouts.

Step 1 can be changed to use any Live CD of your choice, I just like Windows and I'm 99.99% certain my copy of Windows is secure as is as long as it is offline and disconnected from any networks.

Alternatively, create private keys using bitaddress.org or vanitygen and import them as needed.

I also bet fot Armory, it's a beautiful piece of software and the offline wallet is a killer feature:) another nice thing is the paper backup of wallet, it works like a charm..

If you use linux anyway, placing the wallet in a small cryptsetup partition (say on a USB stick) would give encryption _and_ the ability to make it decryptable in case you die, as cryptsetup allows for multiple keys for the same partition - just make yourself a key and give another one to your SO, kids, or parents.
