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.
