It's arguable that a distro for creative folks provides a default editor
without spell checking. Spell checking isn't rocket science and

It's strange that Xubuntu prefers Archive Manager (it isn't
FileRoller anymore) over Engrampa. My guess is, that users usually like
an environment consistency. Some prefer to get no menu bar, while other
prefer to get a menu bar, but I suspect less users like to have a mix of
burger menu and menu bar apps. IMO such a mix is a step in the wrong
direction. Apropos step in the wrong direction, "Many were increasingly
of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from
the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had
been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans."

IN this case the German translation is more funny than the original,
since "Holzweg" is a correct and very funny translation. 

Aus dem Englischen von Benjamin Schwarz.

    "Viele kamen allmählich zu der Überzeugung, einen großen Fehler
    gemacht zu haben, als sie von den Bäumen heruntergekommen waren.
    Und einige sagten, schon die Bäume seien ein Holzweg gewesen, die
    Ozeane hätte man niemals verlassen dürfen." - Per Anhalter durch
    die Galaxis, Kapitel 1, ISBN 3-453-14697-2, PT7 books.google
