Gnome There is a controversy in the Linux world. It doesn't have to do with Microsoft, or anything overtly technical. It may seem, to the outsider, the open source equivalent of the question, "Boxers or briefs?" But it's much more serious than that. More here.

It's true that bundling is up to the distro, but many of these projects are tied to their respective desktops. KPDF and Kopete are both official parts of KDE. Amarok is as well to a lesser degree, being part of KDE extragear as unlike the prior two it's not tied to KDE's release schedule.

Likewise though of course, Evince is a part of Gnome. Empathy is on it's way to being a part of the main desktop, and Rhythmbox is practically already there.

Though the most important point you hit on is that you're not required to have any of these with most modern distributions.
