Some criticisms: - This is not specified in the title, but this is Windows only... A new computer doesn't necessarily have Windows installed! - 7-Zip should be the first of the list... At least, that's the first one I install, because lot of small utilities comes as zip files, and I hate the Windows interface to them (I deactivate it as soon as I can). - iTune as must have? Ewww... Well, if you have an iDevice, why not. But given I have most of the listed softwares on my computers (home and work), I suppose I agree with the list! ;-) I would also add IrfanView (still lightweight, fast and poweful), Foxit Reader (much lighter than Adobe Reader; tried alternative, came back to Foxit), Foobar 2000 (good playlist management; I use VLC only to play a single new file), Thunderbird (I don't like online mail readers), and RssBandit (the demise of Google Reader shows the fragility of online tools... :-)). And some small freewares I elected: SlickRun (fast launch), CLCL (clipboard manager), VirtuaWin (multiple desktop). For drawing, I prefer Gimp, heavy and not so intuitive, but powerful. And Inkscape for vector drawing. Name dropping: Babel for Unicode lovers, Zoom+ as a loupe, WinAlarm to get alerts, SpeQ as calculator. I almost FileMenu Tools (integration to Explorer), Flexible Renamer, Sysinternal's tools. And my editor of choice is SciTE, lighter than Notepad++ (same engine behind them).
