Well, that’s perhaps a little extreme (I did go without my computer for, like, a couple of hours once. But I didn’t like it)

After living with OSX for a few months now there are some apps that I do however find pretty indispensable… so, in no particular order, here they are:<ul>
<li>skEdit - HTML and text editor with syntax highlighting (for multiple languages) and built-in SFTP.
<li>QuickSilver - instantly launch an application (or open a file or locate information) by tapping in a few letters from its name - Hard to describe. Harder to live without
<li>TimeLog - track hours spend on client projects. Easy to use and intuitive.
<li>LocationX - indespensible if you change location frequently (network settings, SMTP servers and timezones all taken care of)
<li>GmailStatus - got GMail… keep an eye on it without having to lift a finger. Wish in included IMAP and POP3 monitoring as well
<li>Adium - like MSN Messenger, iChat, Jabber… but integrates all into one. Shame not video conferencing support any time soon.
<li>Skype - sometimes IM isn’t enough, and you need to hear someone speak and iChat won’t run on their PC
<li>OnyX - helps to keep your Mac in tip-top shape
<li>SizzlingKeys (for iTunes) - iTunes control at your finger tips
<li>StartupSound - you don’t hear it often, but sometimes it’s enough to wake the dead ! This is a great way to control the volume
<li>MAMP - Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin for OSX… with one neat control panel. Still got to wade through .conf files, but it’s an improvement !
<li>rBrowserLite - it’s FTP, but free ! If you need SFTP check out CyberDuck which handles SFTP as well.
<li>Firefox - Safari rocks (after all, it’s why I got my first PowerBook) but FireFox is a great platform for testing sites
<li>BluePhoneElite for managing SMSes and calls via Bluetooth to many brands of handset
<li>e2sync includes Entourage into the happy iSync family
<li>iScrobbler for AudioScrobbler updates without intervention
<li>Meteorologist to keep track of the weather
<li>Virtue for multiple desktop support, taking advantage of the Quartz rendering engine
