Do any of you guys know if anyone's made an ordered list like this? Like maybe, the top 50, with #1 being the best ever.

I tried Googling it, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I thought that you guys might have it. If not, then I'll make a list myself :p

If I have to come to that, what 10 apps would you want me to put in? Please try to make no more than five of them first-party, for I want to focus on third-party apps. Also, games, plugins and prefpanes don't count.

Here are mine:

Itunes
Safari
Bean
Quicksilver
Ichat
Automator
Garageband
Candybar
Scrivener
Seashore

Thanks in advance, everyone!

Life Chronometer

My favorite app of all time, for any OS, is an early 1990s MacOS freeware app called Life Chronometer: You tell it when you were born and when you expect to die; from then on, the software displays a running countdown of the number of hours (day?) you have left. Talk about a motivational tool.
