Wow thanks for doing the 2007 update to this! This is seriously a mac users dream. There are a lot of applications in there that I'm tempted to buy but I'm waiting for OS X 10.5 and for applications to support that before I go buying a bunch of programs. Still plently of free ones for me to check out!

I use the following and find them very useful on a day-to-day basis (and quick too):

- The Unarchiver: Archive unarchiver (Free)

- Xee: Image viewer (Free)

Some applications which I've tried in the past and I think are worth mentioning:

- Menuet: Menubar iTunes controller ($12.95)

- Remote Buddy: Remote control feature.. extender. It adds a lot of functionality to your remote which would previously had only been used for Frontrow. (19.99 €)

- Acqlite: Free alternative to Acquisition (Free)

Good thing I ran into this thread. I completely forgot about Shiira (I was following development of that until I stopped using OS X) and Vienna (looks better than Endo :p). Thanks for the thread. I need to be re-updated with the latest applications for OS X.

You might want to add MT-NewsWatcher under Usenet clients. While it doesn't have the slick interface of Unison, it is free and has some features that Unison doesn't. A good companion to it is Osiris, which automates posting with either it or Thoth (another newsreader that has been discontinued, although it is still distributed as shareware).

Unfortunately, it appears that Acqlite has been discontinued in development. I read some comments and that was what is causing it not to connect. I forgot about Cabos though! That is also a great P2P application.

iStat Menus from iSlayer would be worth adding to the Menubar Extras section -

iStat menus lets you monitor your system right from the menubar. Included are 8 menu extras that let you monitor every aspect of your system.

Take a look at some of the features.

CPU - Monitor cpu usage. 7 display modes, multiple core support.

Memory - Monitor memory usage. 4 display modes, page ins/outs and swap usage display.

Disks - Monitor disk usage and activity. 6 display modes, ability to hide disks you dont want to see.

Network - Monitor current and total bandwidth, peak bandwidth, ip addresses . Ability to hide disks you dont want to see.

Temps - Monitor the temperature of your mac. 2 display modes, ability to hide sensors you dont want to see.

Fans - Monitor the fan speeds in your mac. 2 display modes, ability to hide sensors you dont want to see.

Bluetooth - Control bluetooth status plus monitor the battery level of your Apple wireless keyboard or mouse.

Date & Time - Date + time in your menubar. World clock display lets you see the time in multiple locations around the world.

I think MPlayer/MPlayerOSX should probably be on there as a media player, I prefer it to VLC personally.

Awesome :cool: Could you add some media players to the list? I mean media players along the lines of iTunes and windows media player which have library functions. I really don't like iTunes and Amarok (my player of choice) isn't for OSX until KDE4 comes out.

/me bookmarks for when my MBP arrives.

I used to use VLC myself until I discovered QuickTime 7 + the Perian plug-in. Now QuickTime can literally play just about every popular codec, from the obvious .mov to even .flv.

QT + Perian, unlike it's windows version quicktime is very fast on the mac, I find it hard to use anything else because of the speed difference.
