Did you try to get those added to Ubuntu? Do you think that they are not
shipped on the CD only because it's lacking space? Everything you list
doesn't seem obvious lack, not having an another IRC client than pidgin
is a choice for example. Could you argue with a rational on why you
think those should be added? Maybe there is a way to add some of those
without having to remove cool applications already installed there
