Got a new laptop today and installed the following essentials on it; Adium (IM), Backdrop, Dropbox, Echofon (Twitter), FileZilla (FTP), Firefox, git, Google Chrome, OmniGraffle (diagrams), Quicksilver (app launcher), Spotify, TextMate (text editor), and XCode. Already installed was Subversion, MySQL, Rails, iTunes. I use GMail and Google Calendar so don’t need email or calendar apps. Trying to find an alternative for the expensive Adobe Fireworks and Photoshop. Looking at Acorn and DrawIt for now.
