After installation my first step is to check for additional drivers.
Then I run a script that I wrote which installs all the software I need.
Then run grub-customizer, ubuntu-tweak, and ccsm to customize my system to my liking.

Assuming everything went off without a hitch, and internet is running then first, run all updates.
Probably next is installing Chromium or Chrome and setting it to synchronize with my Google account. This gives me bookmarks, extensions and passwords. Then it is a case of logging into my usual places once (Gmail, Ubuntu Forums, Facebook ,etc).
Install Flash and codecs.
Then I start looking at my additional applications, starting with Dropbox to synchronize my files. Preferably I also have my desktop on the same network so I can run "Sync over Lan" and reduce a 90+ minute ordeal to ~ 20 minutes!
Oh, and I bookmark my usual folders on the LAN.
Then I start adding other programs, depending on my planned use.

The first thing I do after a fresh installation is check for updates, then I install the following:
Aptitude, mc and synaptic
Closed source Nvidia drivers
Handbrake from ppa

I really don't have any order, but my priorities normally include:
Set static IP
For my server/MythTV box:
Configure MythTV (this takes me a long time)
Set up shares
Oracle Java (it is needed for certain things)
Second browser (Firefox and Chrome)
Configure Ubuntu One
Add server to FSTAB

1. Run the update manger and install updates.
2. Install programs/media plug-ins.
3. Install Themes.
4. Clean up via the terminal or Bleachbit.
5. Download/sync all documents/wallpapers from Ubuntu One that are carried from release to release but this was not applicable to my first installation.
