OS X - basic apps


I recently got a new Macbook Pro, which means I also moved to Snow Leopard (not that I couldn’t have stayed with Leopard).

I keep a Time Machine backup, and could have used it to move all my files to the new system. But since I had to many things installed which I don’t use anymore, I decided to move just my personal settings to the new system.

This constituted a great opportunity to list the applications I consider essential:

  • 1 Password
  • Adium
  • Flip4Mac
  • git
  • Growl
  • Handbrake
  • KisMAC
  • Freemind
  • MacPorts
  • NetNewsWire
  • Office 2008
  • Papers
  • Perian
  • Seashore
  • Skype
  • Telephone
  • VLC
  • VMWare Fusion
  • Wireshark
  • XCode

And had to leave GPGMail out (no snow leopard version currently available)

The question now is: What am I missing :) ?
