thanks.

If you frequently use X-Term, then Rootsh is the first must-have you'll need.

If you like modding your N900 (e.g. changing LED colours, battery icons, etc...) then OpenSSH will be useful.

If you want to play with your N900, VGBA and ScummVM should be your first choices.

And, of course, some utilities you'll find helpful:
-Flashlight
-Cpumem-applet
-Leafpad
-Copernicium (for Chemistry)
-OMWeather
-Maep
