	Here's what I use.  No, wait.  First a disclaimer: These are my
preferences but it doesn't mean I am an avid zealot (or even a fan) of
them.  They just mesh with the way I do my stuff.  Ok, now I'll really
list my apps.  These will be listed by functionality with the primary
app first then the backup/secondary app second.

Browser: Firefox, Opera
Mail: Evolution, Thunderbird
Office: Open Office, [tie] ApplixWare and TextMaker
Everything else: Terminal, xterm

	I do all my file management with mc or the command line.  I do most
everything from the command line.  My Xfce desktop usually has 5 or 6
term's open and I bounce around in them.

	And there's my basic setup.  Hope it helps you in your quest.
