choosing typical desktop applications

text editor - gedit

+1 even if I like Leafpad too

image viewer - ristretto

I never take much care about the image viewer

pdf viewer - evince


audio player - audacious

+1, since all of them suck, but I'm using Audacous very often

video player - totem

Similar as for the audio players, I chose them randomly

file manager - nautilus

For Xfce?
+1 if it won't cause issues when somebody has Xfce and GNOME installed, such as switching to GNOME desktop after closing Nautilus in Xfce ;).

disc burner - brasero

:( No, K3b!

I also would encourage you to use Shutter as default for screenshots.

Parted Magic is using a manipulated version of Thunar, maybe you could take a look at it.

IMO your choices are very good.

2 Cents,
