The programs you mention look good, although I would suggest other 
browsers.  I like MPlayer for media and nano for a text editor.  
However, why not just use grml instead?  It comes with pretty much 
everything on the live CD including software speech.  Since it's based 
on Debian, all you need to do is add missing packages.  I like tintin++ 
for muds.  grml comes with all the standard tools and many additional 
packages, so it should have everything you need already.
