    I just bought an iMac last night and a friend of mine told me to get Stuffit and Onyx. Aside from those two software, what are some other software that I should download? Also, what are the cool things that it can do?

    if your into copying dvd's (Legally?) download MacTheRipper it will dump the files into a folder that you can just burn to a dual layer disk. or you can compress and burn them to a single layer disc with the software Toast Titanium (google it) but you have to pay for it.

    if you use msn or aol.. or pretty much any other instant messaging program get Adium X it is probably the best app for it.

    you can go the website MacUpdate: Apple Macintosh Software & Game Downloads to download these mentioned apps and just have a browse for whatever else interests you

    if you havent found it already you can try out dashboard its probably in the bottom left of your screen, on the dock open it up and have a look see.. have fun with your new mac

    Yes, I enjoy it a lot more than Vuze. Its more of a Mac program if you know what i mean. you just drag the torrents file over. Has tabs at the bottom to select how fast you upload.download. But then again that is just my 2 cents

    oh and here is a neat little site opensourcemac.org

    wait i thought you JUST bought a mac.... it took me a couple months to decide between the right .torrent downloader for me and ive been using macs since ...... since..... a good 10 years ago.. now dont get me wrong there are tons of people on here who have a LOT LOT more time on macs than i do but it takes time to weed through/find programs that suite your style of need/want/UI and so forth....


    also to get back on subject check out a widget called iStatPro very nice it shows battery health cpu temp, heatsink temp and so forth also shows ram usage, cpu usage, ip address, how fast you internet connection (up/down) is total hard disk space and its free VERY NICE WIDGET

    .torrent (file type) above is my reference to BitTorrent downloaders.. i may have just made that more confusing
