What makes Mac OS different is the developers, the applications that are released with an incredible attention to detail, beauty and simple functionality. I’ve tried a lot of these applications. I’m a serial tester and adopter anyway, and getting onto a new platform was like being a kid in a candy store. Or a geek in an Apple store…
Anyway, after lots of time and searching, I’ve whittled down to the 11 applications I need, love, and use constantly. Some are big and do a million things, some are small and only do one. They’re all excellent; they’re all for the Mac (though not all are exclusive to OS X), and I love them all.
