VLC is great and I use it for mostly video.
Amarok is excellent for my audio collection.*
K3B works beter than Nero ever did for me. The best burning software I've found.*
Digikam works for most my photo and picture needs.* On rare occasions "the Gimp" for more options in manipulating an image.
Audacity is good for sound recording from analog audio archive (vinyl LPs).
EasyTag for music file tagging. As full featured as the commercial one I bought for Windows. yes I pay for software!
DeVeDe is great for creating Video Disks in a number of formats.*

*These are KDE apps but they will work on other Desktop Environments.
DigiKam with the Kipi-plug-ins will search for duplicates.

For me its just what comes with Ubuntu. Plus Blender.

I have gotten wrapped up with Gimp trying to learn it that's enough for me.
My biggest issues are not doing the next upgrade in 6 mos. I admit it im a total junkie for them.

Cinepaint - handles 16- & 32-bit images (GIMP handles 8-bit). If it's good enough for films like 'Lord of the Rings' it's good enough for me. http://www.cinepaint.org/

If you're addicted to upgrades there's always the daily updates for 10.04, BUT make sure you know how to fix something if it goes wrong - it's not for a production machine. :)

most of the default software with ubuntu works quite well, other than that most of my linux apps are servers and the odd data recovery app.

My favorite is Wine! Then I can run anything from windows and then everything on Ubuntu.

I just wish wine had better application support.
