It would be well worth the money picking up books on bash, and sed & awk. I also use ffmpeg, sox, and imagemagick for multimedia stuff often.

The first thing that I install is florence or matchbox-keyboard.
That should be onboard by default since you else have no chance to get forward without a keyboard.

ntfs-3g to write to ntsf drives
cups for printing
sane for scanners, then xsane and simplescan
handbrake
the print.pdf driver
kmymoney for personal accounting
gnome disk utilities (along with gparted that has been mentioned already)
clamtk antivirus
grsync (graphical rsync utility)
cheese photocapture for your usb camera

and a bunch of others, but already mentioned.

Kind of amazing what you can do with these suckers.
