Tells you what programs try to connect to the internet, and allows you to decide whether or not they do.'

NeoOffice

Free, albeit somewhat unpolished, office suite for mac. Based on the OpenOffice.org code. I started using this after discovering that it's somewhat better with backwards compatibility than Office 08. Added bonus: it's stable as rock, at least in comparison with Office 08. And it supposedly has some VBA compatibility.

Quicksilver

Already mentioned, but this is a great program. It's an app-launcher and much more. Saves up a lot of Dock space, and is simpler than using the Dock much of the time.

Fink and Macports

Lots of great ports to Mac of open source programs. Requires some use of the Terminal though, so if you're not into that might as well leave it alone.
