    Mac OS X Applications

    I know that this site rarely even mentions Macs, but I just bought a Mac for the first time and I would like to know, from any experienced users out there, about a few cool applications I can buy to use on it, or some freeware ones.

    I already have apps like NoteTaker, M$ Office 2004, Candybar, and Konfabulator, but I would appreciate it if you could share some knowledge with me

    Thanks in advance,

    I believe Open Office works (free) on OS X. There's MacGIMP. Generally speaking, if it runs on Linux/Unix it's possible it will have a port to OS X.

    What is it you want to do with your Mac?

    Thanks MsMittens for replying. I'd like to use it like any other computer: browsing the internet, editing pictures, just some general applications which are useful. Are there any others on offer?

    Well in that case:

    Mozilla (browser)
    Opera (browser)
    Thunderbird (email)
    Eudora (email)
    MacGimp (link above)
    Quanta (KDE PHP/HTML editor)

    OS X comes with a fair amount of other applications already (the menu bar should have some defaults like a calculator, basic editor, etc.)

    Some help may be found here:

    Thank you very much MsM! Those sites are really useful, and although I have only just browsed through them, I intend to take a more thorough look at them tomorrow.

    Cheers,
