Just picked up my new 20 inch 2.4 Alu Mac last night. I have not had time to set it up yet, but i was wondering if you guys could suggest some software for me to try out? I am a windows guy moving ot Mac for the first time, so what software is out there that I have to try?

I am really excited to get it up and running and some new software "toys" would be fantastic :) Thanks all!

Aduim. MSN on a mac is pants and aduim allows you to connect many accounts.

You can customise aduim to look really good.
