    I think I posted on your other thread... but as a student I pretty much only get freeware. Here's what's stood the test of time for me:

    iStat menus
    Adium chat client
    Caffeine to keep my screen on for youtube, etc
    Bowtie iTunes controller
    Firefox
    EverSave, which does a timer-based autosave on all open documents
    VideoMonkey video converter
    Paintbrush (like MS Paint)

    There's lots of sites out there that will give recommendations, but I've always found my favorites here on macforums from other users.
