Hi new to MAC with Macbook pro 2.5ghz.

Being new to the Mac world I was wondering what users recommend as essential, useful and good software to get.

I've been told no viruses have been written for Mac, however, I notice Norton have an anti-virus, should I be getting an anti-virus for the Mac or is it not necessary...obviously looking at any anti-spyware etc.

Other appz :

-Anti-virus/spyware <if relevant for Mac>
-Internet browsers
-Email client
-Burning software (currently use Image burn on PC and does all my needs and is simple)
-Players (love Vlc player on PC)
-Registry/system maintainance software (again if relevant stuff like CCleaner/Everest)
-Music playing software (again i use Foosbar on PC)
-Music software(logic/garage band/pro tools etc)
-Newsgroup software (currently use altbinz)
-Photo organising/editors

...anything else peeps recommend that I've missed.
Preferrably freeware ...

QUOTE Thanks
