If a newcomer wants to find a burning app, let's just tell him to use
the defaults. We can always tell him that the ones we advise him to use
are the default ones, and are extra-simple, but that there are others
If he's not satisfied with them, he can always come back. Then we will
be happy to advise him other apps that might suit his needs better.

But, IMHO, for the great majority of users, the default apps entirely

I don't care if something is "sanctioned" or not by anyone. I'm just
pointing out that the default apps have better support and
documentation, and _that_'s what matters for newcomers.

The apps I was advising "just work", too. Maybe not in the way the user
thinks at first, but who knows, he might be even more seduced by ubuntu
discovering it's so much more easy to use than what he had been used to!
