OpenOffice is the (some what) sane choice, personally I use GNOME Office
but the lack of a presenter application really is the deciding factor
for me.

I'll admit I'm really hooked on the Banshee 0.11.x series, if an update
is made to bring the Extras packages up to date I would like to at least
have that considered as the music player. Their podcast and iRadio
support especially is superior to anything I've seen in other players.
