Default REALLY cool apps/programs

I know this is really broad, but I am kinda bored with my computer right now and just wanna make my computer sick, so are there any REALLY cool/useful apps or programs out there that people would recommend?

get style xp / window blinds, find a real good theme, and then find some nice icons on the net, also get a nice wallpaper. that will make it look pretty decent

Windowblinds, Objectdock, Winamp (skinned), have only 3-5 icons on the desktop, and pick a SICK background. I can post up some screenshots if you want.

Google earth is fun to mess with and a handy tool if you travel much.

Browse the Gadgets pages and see if you can find some cool gadgets.
