I’m asking myself, what other Mac users do use for their everyday
needs. How many paid, how many Open Source apps are there on your
Mac(s)? Are there any apps you had to license for more than one Mac?
How many Macs do you use regularly (means: almost every day)?
I’ll begin this little game:
Operating System: Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard
Surfing: Apple Safari
Mail: Apple Mail
Word processing: Apple Pages
Presentation: Apple Keynote
Spreadsheets: Apple Numbers
Adress Book: Apple Adress Book
Calendard: Apple iCal
Photo library: Apple iPhoto (starting to play around with Apple Aperture, too)
Music playback and management: Apple iTunes
Coding: Eclipse or Textmate (depending on the language)
Quickstarter: Google Quicksearch Box
Password management: 1Password
File sharing: Dropbox
Virtualization: VMware Fusion 2.0
Messaging: Adium, Skype and iChat (latter only sometimes)
Notes management: Evernote
Social networking: Eventbox
To Do Management: Things
Image editing: Pixelmator
Backup: Apple Time Machine
Media streaming (to Xbox, PS3): Playback
Media management: Delicious Library
Video codecs: Perian (self-compiled from recent SVN trunk)
PrefPanes: Blue Harvest, Cameras
Every application in the most recent version.
I have two Macs. An iMac 24″ (August 2007) and a white MacBook 13″
(February 2008). Except Apples iWork every application I use is
legally usable on more than one machine as it is licensed per user,
not per machine.
Please write a post yourself or leave your equipment in the comments.
