Maybe a useful start would be for people to write and tell us what packages they
regularly use in their research.
I use the following packages often in my physics research (note - I'm a KDE
user, so I use the KDE variations of things, usually):
kdevelop + a few C/C++ libraries (fftw3, gsl, wxwidgets, blitz), for coding in C++
mingw32 for cross-compiling my code for windows
labplot for plotting my data into publication-worthy plots
openoffice.org for writing presentations and the papers that have to be .doc format
kile + latex for writing papers that can be in latex
firefox + thunderbird for browsing/email
What do others use?
