Drupal core is great and keeps getting better all the time. Each new release integrates new code, often from contributed modules. As an example, Drupal 7 integrated functionalities from more than 50 contributed modules of Drupal 6 (http://drupal.org/node/895314). This is just to tell how important the contributed modules are to Drupal. On the first part I'll talk about the essential modules that could as well be part of core in the future. The second part will be about really nice modules that shall be installed depending on your site needs.
