My initial criteria will be something like:

- Only graphical apps

- Include 'flagship apps' that people might have heard about

- Include apps from a variety of different areas

- Prefer things that are not included on the live cd, since this is
supposed to help people find new apps, not things they already have


Using those criteria, 10 slots are quickly filled: 

 firefox
 thunderbird
 openoffice (writer, calc, impress)
 pidgin
 gimp
 inkscape
 eclipse 
 virt-manager
 maybe f-spot
 a game

A nice extension would be to reserve a spot for some 'package of the
week' like feature, that would showcase lesser-known apps like glabels,
agave, etc.
