Well, yesterday I bit the bullet and bought that new Powerbook I’ve been whining about wanting so badly. I’m still struggling a little with the shift in functional methodology from Windows, but I’m already in a position to say I prefer OSX.
So, what I want to know from the world out there is:
what apps are must have for chat/IM (iChat doesn’t seem to do them all – Jabber, MSN, ICQ and Yahoo and Fire seems buggy as I can’t delete blocked or unwanted buddies)(Adium, no question. Who doesn’t like a green duck?), download management(iGetter combined with FlashGot in Firefox), FTP(Transmit. ‘nuf said.) and anything else you care to recommend;
- best Dashboard widgets;
how do I import my Thunderbird address book into the OSX Address BookSolved. Use Outlook2Mac on my Outlook contacts. Much easier; how do I get OpenOffice 2 to install, ‘cos it just doesn’t seem to work for meMostly solved. Neooffice/J; can I get iCal and Address Book to sync with my O2 XDA IIsSolved. Move jobs, hand back the XDA, and get a Razr;
- what else don’t I know about that I should?
