basically apps that are part of the release are no different then gtk apps you install yourself later, except the fact that they arent included in the release.

Yes, but in many people don't install apps, especially people in offices. Defaults matter in a distro.

Indeed. I once had to change the colours on a Windows desktop for a user who had no idea what had gone wrong. Oy.

Personally, I wish someone would create a project that would tie in GnomeFiles.org and pup or pirut or whatever GUI package installer du jour is. There's still this huge gap between browsing available apps on GnomeFiles and actually installing them.
