Ben's Essentials - Software For The New Laptop

So far, I'm really enjoying the new laptop. I'm just thrilled that the battery meter claims I have 5+ hours of battery life on a single charge.

As with any new computer, I've found that everytime I go to do something, I find another piece of software missing. So, the last few days have been spent re-creating my ideal environment. Below is the list of items I've added to the box so far. I hope to add this list as I add more packages.

Can you suggest any essentials I've missed? The list doesn't include really basic stuff, like Adobe Acrobat or Flash.

In no particular order...

Update: I've updated this list while setting up my new laptop. Items crossed out above are either no longer used, or have been superseded by other tools.
