    Hi,
    I'm getting my first Mac next week (a Mac Mini) and as I'm coming from the Windows camp, I wondered if you could recommend software for me?

    I am a web developer so I will be getting Adobe CS4 (currently use CS3 on my PC), but what else could you guys recommend?

    I do a bit of everything really: Photo editing/video editing/podcast making/etc so any software you could advise would be great - also, I will need a good FTP client.

    Thanks

    Cyberduck is my FTP Client. I'd also recommend Quicksilver
