The first thing I do after updating a new install is get the applications I really 'need' to complete the install.

Unless already installed by default, I make sure to install the following...

AWN
Cairo Dock (If AWN is not available)
Docky (If AWN and Cairo Dock are not available)
Rar/Unrar
7Zip
gThumb
GIMP
Firefox
Google Chrome
Qbittorrent
Gnomebaker
VLC
SMplayer
Openshot
PiTiVi (If Openshot is not available)
DeaDBeeF
Clementine
Soundconverter
EasyTag
Audacity
LibreOffice
Abiword (If LibreOffice is not available)

Terminator
Google Chrome
Pidgin
VLC
Eclipse

Then I immediately uninstall LibreOffice and GIMP because they're so awful and just take up space

This is a terminal bit (of course) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, after adding the medibuntu.org repo.

I run all my "linuxes" in virtualbox, so I don't need that many apps. Just need stuff for designing themes, icons and stuff.
After an install of Gnome it's basically just this:
pacman -Sy gedit file-roller unrar p7zip unzip gnome-terminal gimp inkscape eog opera yaourt gtk-engines gtk-engine-murrine

And then some packages from AUR:
freetype2-infinality, fontconfig-infinality, awf

OpenSSH
tmux
Vim
Subversion/Git to pull down my dotfiles.

The rest depends on what the server will be used for.
