Agreed. Some of these are the hallmarks of open-source, and are pretty obvious additions to the list (eg Firefox), and others are a bit less heard-of. Definately worth looking at.

Very helpful, especially for those of us making the switch from other platforms.

Awesome list *bookmarked* I will definitely have to come back and download a few when I have more time. Of course, I've already discovered the wonders of Cyberduck, Adium, VLC, etc.

Now, how to remember that the next time a newbie asks for a complete list...? :p ;)

Now that free software is becoming pupular among Mac users, I hope Free OpenSource Software users will join FreeSMUG (http://www.freesmug.org) (Free Software Mac User Group), the first online MUG devoted to FOSS till 1.05.2004.
Site offer also a FOSS directory (http://www.freesmug.org/review/), news on last releases (http://www.freesmug.org/news) and forums (http://www.freesmug.org/forums) to share your experince. All can post in forums. Members can submit and publish (http://www.freesmug.org/sitefeatures/) news, tutorial, comments, review and more.
Our motto is: From XX century best computer, for XXI century best FOSS computer.

Nice list, thanks for posting. I bookmarked it already as a few friends are switching and I'm confident such a resource will come in handy :)

That's hardly a complete list!Shhh.... newbies won't know...

:D

And I know it's just freeware on the list... and not even close to complete at that... but it's a start... ;)

I mean none of my apps are on it for a start :pIf you bug the author, I'm sure he'll add your stuff, too... ;)

iEatBrainz (http://www.indyjt.com/software/?show=ieatbrainz#ieatbrainz) looks useful. This is something I was looking for.
