even though i've been using the mac for a few months now, i found that once you buy one app, you find out there's another app out there you could have used, and sometimes, finding out about many of these apps is quite difficult if you didn't post on the forums about a specify program or something similar. i think the mac guides needs a page that just lists programs by category, like finance software, and cooking software, etc. i think something of the sort is already in the beginner's guide, but i think a more elaborate list that will cover at least most legit mac software should be in here. what do you guys think?

So you want to do this?

Macintosh Products Guide (http://guide.apple.com/index.lasso)

And you can also go to ...

www.versiontracker.com

2nd one is a good place to go if you are looking for something to open a specific file or driver.

i'm such a dope. but i think there should be a link to this page in the beginner mac guides: http://www.versiontracker.com/macosx/updByCat.php on the bottom for those who want to browse more into mac software.

I found the OS X section of iusethis (http://osx.iusethis.com/) to be a useful place to discover apps

I actually think this is quite a good idea, so I'm making a start on it:

i suggest a section of mac maintenance and backup apps. i think most people forget about backing up their stuff sometimes.
