KDE is packed with great apps. Discluding ones installed per default in kubuntu, here are some that I like/use:

kget - download manager
kalarm - schedule timed events
Quanta+ - Web Development program
KDevelop - Multilanguage IDE
KOffice - Office Suite. Nice and fast.
Superkaramba - desktop widgets

I use the GNOME desktop, however I prefer the following KDE apps to the GNOME equivalents:

Amarok (of course)
K3B
Gwenview
KTorrent

I also like Kopete, Kooka, Konqueror and KSysLog (not sure if this is its exact name)

I have installed K3b amarok and KDevelop
K3b works great and i will remove gnomebaker :)
amarok is great too, i can use MySQL to backup the database
however, amarok have import song problem , propably japanese song
i can't import song through ticking the boxes in collection folder setting
however, i am able to add songs using playlist=>add media and select my Music Folder, strange...

Lastly, i used KDevelop to make a console hello world program and i got this warning, is it ok?
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitalized input device 169

Amarok - Great audio player
Kate - Great text editor, with highlighting for lots of programming languages and lots of other features
KTorrent - I think it's the only decent bittorrent client
Kaffeine - Video player. If Totem doesn't fit you, then you might want to try it
K3b - Powerful CD/DVD burner
Akregator - As its description says, this is an RSS feed reader which I like
soundKonverter - Converts to and from different audio formats. I'd say to go directly with CLI apps for this part though

well, i don't like amarok because it crashes often and its missng some functionality and it doesn't have the greatest range of compatible formats (eg Listen is a lot better in that respect). k3b never seems to work for me, so i didn't list either of them.

No I really don't like them, their UIs are poorly designed. Amarok specifically is probably the single most cracktastic application I've never worked with. If I had to mention one good part about KDE it would be KHTML but that's not a program.

And don't think I don't use KDE, I actually have a KDE setup for testing purposes, I never decide on anything without proper research. Besides like many people I got my start with Linux back when KDE1 was the fad. Once GNOME 2 came out though I was sold on the vision and design ideals and I haven't looked back when it comes to my primary desktop.

One thing KDE has that I wish we had in GNOME... Zack Rusin, that guy rocks.

K3b (nothing else seems to work for multisession dvds, including nerolinux)
I prefer the Gnomebaker interface but I can't get it to do multisession dvds

Amarok the only fully featured audio player I can find
Exaile is almost there but I can't get it to play audio cds

Kolor Lines much better than its Gnome equivalent Five or More

I also use several QT apps

Qcad the only 1/2 decent free cad available

Qgis excellent gis system, much easier to use although not as feature packed as Grass

Quiteinsane nice simple scanner interface without windows floating everywhere like Xsane

Scribus the only decent desktop publishing software available

kpovray, 3D raytracing, I've only done the tutorial but I now have an overview about how 3D works.

ksnapshot, it lets you do screengrabs of any area with your mouse.

Color Picker applet, get the color of anything on your screen (doesn't work with beryl for me though).

kcontrol, you can adjust so much of your system so easily.

konqueror, the filemanager part. Fast and you can customize your toolbars with so many handy items. The file open/save dialogs let you do so much.

The whole kpart thing, where applications use the same system componants. There is a nice continuity between apps.

For me Gnome has an artistic look and feel that I appreciate, but the speed, useability and customization ability of KDE keep me there. I use Gnome on my laptop a lot, because I tend to use it more simply, mostly web browsing and email.

one good thing about kaffeine is that it has a plugin to change the tempo of the audio, and with the option of doing so without changing the pitch. i found that to be useful for playing basslines slowly so that i could here the detail perfectly. alsaplayer also has a similar ability.
