Essential and recommended software

Below is a list I started in 1995. It's my sublimation of Personal Computer experience, I update this list quite regularly, feel free to bookmark jult.net/warez ;-)
Not everyone will need everything on it, and I use a lot more software than the stuff mentioned here, but this is the software I'm more than happy to know, use and really approve of. Sharing this knowledge would be a good idea, I guess.
