    Is there a way to move certain programs only when converting to a new Mac? Looks like Migration assistant wants to do them all. I would rather pick and chose which I would like to move.

    It is all or nothing. I chose to reinstall them individually.

    You'll have to do them by hand. Remember to look into the following locations in order to carry over your preferences, registration, etc ...

    ~/Library/Application Support
    ~/Library/Preferences
    /Library/Application Support
    /Library/Preferences.

    There may also be files in other places like in "Documents" or in the 2 Libraries, depending on the programs.
