I'm getting an iMac today. Any free stuff that you guys would recommend downloading? Excluding stuff like NeoOffice, web browsers (Opera, Firefox, Chrome), video players (VLC, Adobe media player), and image editors (Gimp).
Also, this is my family's first desktop computer in YEARS.

Here are a couple free downloads:
1. Onyx. You won't need it right away, but good to have for the future.
Download OnyX for Mac - OS X maintenance & optimization tool. MacUpdate Mac Software Downloads
2. Xbench. Benchmarking program just for some fun.
Xbench: Comprehensive Macintosh Benchmarking
Enjoy that new computer...always lots of fun!

I use Handbrake all the time to rip DVD's
My favorite application I have for my iMac (and iPhone) is not free but worth checking out
Password Manager + Automatic Form Filler for Mac OS XiMac 21.5 late 2009
...turning into an iMovie junky.
