4DOS is okay, but I would prefer to have Freecom by default, and the choice to 
switch to bash/4DOS, because Freecom is the most similar to MSDOS

Good point here. JEMM is the natural evolution of Michael's EMM386, so it 
should be included as default.

HX Extender in a default instalation? I would say no... it should be rather 
available as an optional package.

For me, batch is just okay :)

The MS-EDIT from W98 is the best editor I've seen so far. To bad there aren't 
any free clone of it :(

File manager should be optional. Personally, I don't use such tools, I prefer 
to COPY / DEL and REN my files. Of course there should be at least 2-3 
choices for file manager.

The purpose of FreeDOS is to reproduce a MSDOS system on x86 CPUs... Go read 
Jim's manifesto ;-)
