Your recommendation aren't consistent with Debian.
Explaining that the packages are there is also valuable information, so
instead of removing those items, I think I'll just include a note that
says that they are installed by default.
* openoffice, gimp, ekiga, pigin... are installed by default
so there is no need to explain how to install them.
* Debian has chosen to install openoffice rather that abiword and
gnumeric, so it's awkward that your first example is to install
Shuffling the order shouldn't be too difficult. Will do!
Also the wiki pages http://wiki.debian.org/WindowsEquivalent aims to
list equivalent application, *in* Debian. It isn't complete yet.
I'll definitely include that list. (I might even add to it myself).

Thanks Franklin and Holger!
