Way too late, but thought I'd chime in for posterity.

OpenOffice - why spend the money on Microsoft Office? You can even read and write most Office documents!

GIMP - it's a photoshop-like image processing program. Why spend the money to do simple work on your photos?

FireFox - of course, it's just replacing Internet Explorer, but you don't need to worry about Spybot as much because it more effectively blocks the nasties.

Of course, with most Linux distributions, you don't have to worry about spyware anyway, and that's completely free. :) - However, that's for the more advanced user...
