Linux software apps - What's hot and what's not?

You've got your favorite Linux distro installed - what next? What's are the "must have" software apps for Linux?

OK, there has been such an excellent response to previous posts where I've asked for feedback that I think that it's time for another "have your say" post.

I'm getting ready to begin my Linux experience.  There was excellent feedback to the post I made asking for your thoughts on the best distro for the desktop PC.  Now I'm going to ask for more thoughts and feedback.  This time I was to know what software Linux users have installed on their PCs.  I know I could hit Google and do a lot of searching, but this isn't going to tell me what's popular and what's not.

I'm particularly interested in the following categories of software:

  • Office apps (word processors, spreadsheets ...)
  • Email
  • Image editing/drawing package
  • CD/DVD software (players and disc burning tools)
  • Messaging
  • RSS
  • Utilities (ZIP tools and so on)
  • Other stuff!
