What programs do you usually install on the first day after installing a new OS?
and no i dont regularly post in the desktop thread because they make fun of me for keeping functionality but i used that as a guide
you the one with that very ugly gentoo desktop? Not hating. I'm more for ease of use as well. Just wondering heh.
some people rice too much and short of ruins the actual use of them. I'd like to see more of them in normal action instead of just screen shots.

In no particular order
This great I just click everything I need go to a drink come back everything is installed. It also doesn't seem to install all the shit tool bars and shit that they always want to install.
Chipset, SATA drivers -> debloat Windings -> create a normal user account -> Windows Firewall Control -> network drivers -> connect to the internet -> install updates.
GPU drivers -> 7zip -> Firefox, qBittorrent, JPEGView, Thunderbird, MPC-HC + madVR, Notepad++ etc.
Oh, and I usually copy my portable foobar2000 before installing updates to listen to some shit because it takes a while to download and install everything.
Emacs is probably first, followed by whatever programs I happen to be using within Emacs/my config file. Emacs stands in for my shell (eshell), my irc client (rcirc), my file browser (dired), as well as my text editor/"IDE" (with enhancements from Evil, my init.el, and inferior modes for specific file types), and probably other things that I don't even think about.
I use Firefox for web browsing because so far Emacs has nothing good to offer, and Firefox is a great program. Currently I'm using OS X, and I use Cog for music because it just werks, but previously on Linux machines I've set up Emacs to use mpd, so depending on the OS I'll use one or the other. I have a nice CD player/turntable though so I don't use Cog very much.
On OS X I'd install Homebrew, along with my main programs that I use with it-- various programming language implementations, mpv, rubber for LaTeX, youtube-dl, small things like tree etc. Depending on the distro I'd be installing the same things with whatever package manager it ships with.
If I were to start from scratch I'd redo major parts of my Emacs setup, installing as much as I can through its package manager and simplifying my init.el because it's sort of a wreck right now (albeit a wreck that works pretty well). I would probably delegate as little actual Elisp as possible to the init.el and splice up the parts that actually do things to their own files-- I imagine a good init.el would be little more than a chain of `require's. Other than that I'm pretty happy with my setup.
And all the rest of them, I can't think of them all but I have them in a text file. It's a single terminal command instead of a hundred .exe files.
>all rice shit
In this order:
urxvt+zsh+make them default
I don't do prgramming, so after I've installed all of the above, I'm in at least working order, and I can listen to some music whiel I continue to set up non-essentials.
mpc-hc with animu codecs and set up
Guitar Rig, Audacity, other music stuff
vmbox with whatever easy set up debian-fork, then here I install coding packages like special compilers or whatever
Damn, too many.
I use guitar rig for more than just guitar, it has alright stuff that makes it work for late night playing, since my amps don't have headphone out.
Audacity works good enough for quick takes.
I will be installing win8 soon, I need some work related software that only runs on windows(also I need to get my system ready for upcoming gtav), but dont worry my second laptop runs mint.
I really dont know what I am going to install. The first thing probably is firefox, then vlc, maybe fdm,
