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.

I build my packages and they are as follows:

Openbox + all the goodies (obconf, obapps, obmenu, obshutdown, tint2, etc...)
VLC
Geany + plugins
Dropbox
Claws Mail + extra plugins
Evince
Unrar
P7zip
Conky + Lua
scrot
tp_smapi
Thinkfan
sbopkg
src2pkg

I'm sure I missed a few.

Terminator
Google Chrome
Pidgin
VLC
Eclipse

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


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.
