    With your job, or your home uses of your Mac, what are your indespensible applications?

    Don't count anything that was preinstalled on the machine, like Mail and Safari. Just third party. Mine:

    iOrganize (Notes)
    Vienna (RSS Reader)
    Wallet (Serial and list managment)
    Microsoft Word (I am a writer)

    This app is great, the network menu is a godsend, it allows for quick access to your different ip addresses, interfaces configuration, stats and so on... all through a small menu, it does much more thant just display pretty graphs as the versiontracker summary suggest.

    Do try it out.
