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...

[i]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)[/i]

Terminator
Google Chrome
Pidgin
VLC
Eclipse

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

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:
[i]pacman -Sy gedit file-roller unrar p7zip unzip gnome-terminal gimp inkscape eog opera yaourt gtk-engines gtk-engine-murrine[/i]

And then some packages from AUR:
[i]freetype2-infinality, fontconfig-infinality, awf[/i]

Chromium
MusicBrainz Picard (Use this first to tag and then EasyTag for manual/custom changes)
Htop
Calibre
Inkscape (Also GIMP, has been mentioned in other posts)
Handbrake
VIM (vi improved)
projectM
XBMC (If your PC is used for everything!)
BleachBit
Banshee (Has been causing a few problems in ARCH Linux of late, but can be fixed. It still has the best layout of all Linux Music Players, for me anyway!)

That's my list. :)

Chrome. I can't live without it. Installed Linux Mint 14 today and that was the first thing I grabbed.

If those are part of the default install then why remove them? you could break something.

Libre Office and GIMP are easy to uninstall, and not break a sweat.

Most people covered 90% of what I install only addition is--

TEAMVIEWER

Since now they have a Linux version- Which allows me to connect to my desktop remotely -- as well as work on other peoples computers while still in Linux instead of having to boot into Windows.
