Hey hey! King Antonius here.

Bought my 1st ever mac today! An old Mac Mini (Hey, i got a good deal) with:

G4 1.25Ghz Processor
512 Mb Ram
OS 10.4 Tiger

My question is, what GREAT apps are out there for the machine?? I have Office 2008, Firefox 3, Adium and UnRarX.

Any other amazing/cool apps i should get? And is there any neat games on it?

Cheers guys.
QUOTE Thanks

Pretty much anything really. I could do with a good picture viewer, that will let me view each picture in a folder by skiping through with the arrow keys (Like photo viewer in windows)

Anything else, i dont mind!!

Congrats on your new mac. (:

If you're looking for a good photo viewer (that's also free) I've been using justlooking. It lets you view a picture in a folder and skip through whatever's in that folder using the arrow keys like you said.

Congrats! Programs....Hmmmm.....Audacity is a great multi platform audio editor, Burn is a good cd/dvd burn program, not sure what HandBrake does, but it's in my Dock..., Photoshop is always nice, and Transmission for your torrent needs. That should cover the basics.
