If you're a bittorrent user, Transmission is a great app, probably the best bittorrent client on the mac.
Adium for IMing.
Firefox for web browsing.
If you're into games, Nexuiz is pretty good, and it's multiplatform too, so your Windows and Linux friends can play it with you.
GimpShop is a pretty good open source Photoshop type thing.
VLC is pretty much the definitive play-anything-you-want-it-to media app.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

EDIT: Awesome avatar by the way.

I liked transparent dock (it adds many features including transparency to the dock), but I'm not sure if it's compatible with Leopard.
