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).
