Mac OS X apps I am using

I am still running tiger on my MacBook. Now I have no time, to put any effort in upgrading to leopard, however sooner or later I will do this. I am writing down the list of applications I am using on tiger, just to know what should I install on leopard. I don't want to perform an upgrade, rather install everything from scratch. Kind of Windows approach? Definitely - Mac OS X is Unix but definately not Unix of debian distro paradigm, with all the apt and aptitude goodies. Lets take MacPorts as an example. They are so messy in managing library dependencies. Some cyclic dependencies result in permanent grow of installed versions of the same library.

One thing I am sure - I will create small partition for Ubuntu, when installing leopard. I hope the same partition could be used by BootCamp and Parallels.

And here is the list:

  • Thunderbird
  • Eclipse
  • Firefox
  • Adium
  • Inkscape
  • Mplayer
  • Skype
  • last.fm
  • SQLDeveloper
  • SSHKeychain
  • Stickies
  • JDeveloper
  • Cisco VPN Client
  • Smultron
  • OpenOffice
  • MS Remote Desktop Connection
  • X11
  • TaskCoach
  • Lyx
  • Gimp
  • Amua
  • Chicken of the VNC
  • Cyberduck
  • Disk Inventory X
  • Google Earth
  • Google Notifier
  • iRed Lite
  • MacSaber :)
  • Reader Notifier
  • Second Life
  • Tinker Tool
  • UnRarX
  • Lingon
  • MacPorts
  • Deep Sleep - real hibernation istead of suspension, means no battery is consumed on powering the memory

Update: there is no need of using SSHKeychain anymore - leopard has this functionality built in and integrated with system keychain - great.
