9.10 and beyond
While I'd like to investigate Xfburn over Brasero (but this takes time to test the apps, make sure they work, etc, and my CD drive kind of died), I don't think wicd can replace networkmanager, for a very simple reason: it's GUI is really, really not intuitive and easy to use. I haven't tested MPlayer for quite some time, but I remember I clearly preferred Totem's GUI over the alternatives' ones, because it was just simple and doing it's job for most basic uses. I may one day recommend Parole over Totem, when I think it came to feature parity, but I don't think MPlayer or VLC would be any better for end users.
