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?
