    Best software???
    Maybe just like having MF-MOTF, we could have a nomination and then poll on what your favorite open source/free software for mac is.

    Edit: QS won lol , but i think this should be a software you like thread. it dosent matter if it is free or opensource but try not to list expensive programs. (200$ and up)

    Actually, I just downloaded Quicksilver and I want to change my vote to that. Already I can see this thing completely changing the way I use my computer once I get used enough to it.

    quicksilver by far

    If you don't use this already take the time to get to know it. In it's simplest form it is an app launcher, in it's full form it does everything. I love it

    Few tutorial pages
    http://theappleblog.com/category/screencasts/

    Quicksilver document page

    http://www.43folders.com/topics/quicksilver/

    And Merlin Mann from 43 folders did a podcast on Macbreak about quicksilver edisodes 12 and 17.

    MacBook Black 2ghz / 2g / 160g72k | Ipod nano black 4G
    Adium is my most used and has crashed maybe 3 times since dec, but i dont complain about things that are free

    so for me, for most usage

    1. Adium (as i used trillian on PC as i got so many IM accounts makes it So easy)
    2. VLC - great player for all!
    3. Increase - a GUI for folding at home, makes it so easy to set up and control and monitor.

    Well, it's time to try QuickSilver and Adium. I'm too new to have tried anything yet. Still exploring what I already had and my .Mac trial just ended too. So I'm ready for some other apps. Thanks for the info.
