Essential OS X Applications

I'll now be working from home two days a week, and took a work iMac home with me. (Doing coding on my 12" iBook would be too painful to contemplate.)

So last night, and this morning, I did a complete, from-scratch build out on this iMac. I've been building up a list of the software I need to get a base level of functionality on a new OS X box. They are ordered largely in the order in which I installed them -- which is why QuickSilver is first; it's far too painful to work on a box without QS installed. I'll post more about WHY these apps are so important to me if anyone is interested.
