For me, my top apps are:

TextWrangler - awesome free text editor, syntax highlighting, FTP up/download - and did I say free? Made by the people who make BBEdit.

Spotify - free music, awesome. Just edit the config file if you are a 8Gb user and set the cache to something like 50Mb... the lowest you can set it in the app itself if 1Gb for some reason.

VLC - plays everything, well.

Cyberduck - FTP and WebDav access, free, works well, not as nice as Transmit but that costs money.

Skype - turns your Mini 9 into a free videophone, or a regular phone if you pay a small amount for a subscription.

Adium - the best IM client out there period! Why can't Microsoft, AOL and the like make their clients look this nice?

I got rid of:

Safari - never use it.
iChat - never use it.

Was going to trash iTunes as well but left it because sometimes it comes in useful for streaming from one computer to another.

plainview : software : the barbarian group

The only Fullscreenbrowser for OS X I know (Based on Webkit Engine).
Perfect for small displays like on our Dell Minis.

You can still use Expose or switch programs to get out without closing.

CMD+N gives you a new tab/window, CMD+W closes the active one.
All other needed shortcuts are displayed on the startpage, or can also be accessed through the contextmenu (right-click).

Would never use it on my iMac, but on the Mini it's georgous.

Google Chrome and Opera 10 has full screen view on the Mac OS X and they are great for the small Dell Mini screens.

I was surprised to discover that Firefox doesn't have full screen view on the Mac OS X because the Windows version has full screen view.

and for photo editing, Seashore
its basically a cocoa port of Gimp.

I had no idea there are so many "must have" applications. Just want to add SyncMate ( - a nice synchronization tool as for a freeware.

MarsEdit for some offline blogging while on trains etc? Might as well catch up on your posts in that downtime!

I recommend:

Growl - System Notifications
Perian - Codec
Dropbox - File sync software
Glims - Safari plugin
Safari Adblock - Safari plugin
Safari Cookies - Safari plugin
Tweetie - Twitter client
Gruml - RSS reader with integrated Google Reader support
Ecoute - Tiny iTunes player
TheHistList - To do/GTG list thing

For those members using Safari - please do install Glims. It really is one of the best Safari plugins out there.
