Here is Ms 2008 SBS, and I want when a client/user computer connect to server for a first time(Time when added to the domain) to be able to automatically sync and install all default programs that set as important for every employee.

Because installing the same program on each PC is annoying.

Is it possible?

yes, it's possible. Covered in my SBS 2008 book, still available from
Amazon, et al. Basically, you need to use group policy and .MSI files in
2008 because the earlier kludge from 2003 is gone. (And not particularly
missed, I might add, since it was quirky at best.)

Beyond that, it's not a bad idea to use something like MDT
(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/s.../dd407791.aspx) to
create an image and build your new client computers consistently.

Finally, an even easier way is to use a Remote Desktop Session Host
(Terminal Server) and deploy your apps as RemoteApps. That's how I do it
here.
