Hi guys, sorry if this is a topic that has been done already, if so please point me in the right direction and lock this.

Wondering what you all would suggest were your best free apps? I'm just curious to add a bit more to my Mac.. actually, I'm mainly after a DVD burning app for now. I want to burn some data onto a DVD-R, do I need an app for this or can it be done somehow within OSX?

Thanks

EDIT: Title should have read, 'What are YOUR best free apps?'

You can do it in osx...

Just right click on your desktop and select "New Burn Folder"
put whatever you want to burn in there and click "Burn" when you are done...

My favorite freeware apps are.
1)Adium
2)Firefox

Thanks for that, I thought you might be able to.

Only reason I've ever used FF is because Hotmail has an issue with Safari sometimes, which can get annoying. I find it slow and not so user-friendly otherwise, Safari beats it hands down in my opinion!

I used Adium once and was confused! What can you do with it?

Hi Eric.. erm, thank I guess, but why did you link me to "A switcher's guide to OS X Software" ? That's not the point of this thread, nor am I a switcher.

I just wondered what free apps people liked and why.

I ran into a bit of a pickle looking for DVD writing software (I bought an external DVD-R that came with no software!)

I found "Image Burner" free and works for me so far! let me know how it works out for you
