Might be good to include the version as well, as some packages are available in for example squeeze but not in wheezy.

I think this list would work much better on the Wiki than on the forum. If left only on the forum it'll just get lost in amongst all the other hundreds of posts... :|

good idea. Personally I enjoy downloading software and trying it out but I do think people who are used to more directed environments might be more inclined to persevere with the RPI and Linux in general if they could find recommendations and generally have a more positive user experience. It's got to be good for both the Pi and computing in general.
