I'm sure you'll get plenty of input on the browser/mail/office 
stuff, but I've got a suggestion on the finance application. 
Have a look at MoneyDance - it's not free, and it's a java 
application, so either or both of those might eliminate it from 
consideration, but I started using it a few years ago when I was 
first considering a switch to linux.  I liked the fact that it 
was a cross-platform application; the developer has builds for 
Windows, Linux, and Mac.  As for price, it was around $30 if I 
remember correctly, but I've only paid once - there's never been 
an charge for an upgraded version (although I certainly won't 
guarantee that this will always be the case).
