    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.

    Nice

    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 that free software is becoming pupular among Mac users, I hope Free OpenSource Software users will join FreeSMUG (Free Software Mac User Group), the first online MUG devoted to FOSS till 1.05.2004.

    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 :)

    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... ;)

    If you bug the author, I'm sure he'll add your stuff, too... ;)
