    I'm a Newbie to the Mac OS. I just got a 24" iMac desktop with Leopard. I got it set up fine but I'm looking for a few suggestions for what you consider crucial or vital 3rd party apps. Are their any apps I should download right away to make my user experience better from the start? Thank you.:)

    Some of my favorites...

    Adium - for IM'ing on multiple networks (AIM, Yahoo!, MSM, Google, ICQ)

    Disktracker - nice tool for cataloging back-up disks (for those of those who don't have 2 Gig backup drives...)

    Firefox - browser

    MacJournal - duals as personal journal keeper and blogging tool.

    Start with those.
