    I am sick of PC users saying there is no software for the Mac. So, if someone could point me to a long bloated listed...thanks. :D

    It's pointless, there are probably more versions of solitaire for the PC than there are apps for the Mac.

    But, how many games of solitaire can you really play at once.

    I just did a quick search in the guide listed ealier. It says it has 23,000 applications in it. And I bet that it doesn't include a lot of the freware and shareware apps on versiontracker.com.

    Yeah, I find when I ask what exactly is missing from the Mac, it's usually games. Although the few hundreds of games offered is enough to please me.:D

    There's something called quality over quantity. Something microsoft (and many windows users) knows nothing about. The funny thing is a huge percentage of windows users NEVER purchase software. I know people who would never spend even 5 bucks on a windows app (nevermind paying for the OS). What does that tell you about the general quality of software written on windows? They work, and that's about it.

    i think everyone knows about versiontracker (they suck) and macupdate.com but another neat list is from hyperjeff (the original osx app list) some of its graphs are interesting:
