We already have a number of threads about favorite applications. We're keeping a list of them here. However, most of them are about free applications, not commercial ones.

Adium - Better then iChat for multiple reasons.
NeoOffice - Pretty much the same as MS Office but free
Acquisition - For those times when you want to use a P2P program this is best one out there. It's designed from ground up for OS X.

Those are the 3 main programs I use that don't come with OS X. Other then that I use Safari, iTunes, Mail, iCal, etc...

Seeing as this isn't a free/shareware thread (have a look at Doctor Q's link for those) I have to say EyeTV 2. Hooked on it - completely changed the way I watch TV.

Ive only had a Mac for a few days but ive heard AppZapper is good and i bought it (only £7) and it is very handy so i would have to go for that.

Saft plug in for Safari, it makes every link you open will open in a new tab instead of a new windows, extremely benefitial. Toast 7 platinum too.
You should download Serial Box too.

I considered it but then discovered I couldn't get the programming on my computer because of my location. I vaguely remember hearing of something changing. I'm a bit confused as to how it works ie. local cable.

Photoshop
iTunes
