Ubuntu has most of the common applications already loaded.

However, for a superb CD/DVD burner; K3b

For an excellent replacement for Quicken; KMoney

xine is a pretty cool CD/DVD player and with the correct codecs, will replace PowerDVD rather nicely.

I think you may have already discovered The Gimp, which some claim is a Photoshop equivalent.

There are just so many........

I found a program called TuxGuitar which allows you to compose & play back music. Supposedly comparable with Sibelius which costs megabucks.

Evolution for email.

OpenOffice is a must have.

Google have linux versions of Picasa & Google Earth.
