You seem to argue against installing any applications by default.  Do
I misunderstand you?

Yes, you misunderstood me. I've said "some other types of applications",
not "any applications".

Of course we should pick one office suite, one webbrowser, one mail user
agent, ... one basic set of apps.

But outside this set of "basic apps" there are more types of applications, ie
videoeditors, where IME there is no "best one to pick". And this thread
confirmed this.

Why is singling out basic apps more obvious? There is no "best one to pick" there either.
