    Hello,

    After many years and many inferior pc laptop buys, i have made the move to Mac. I have bought a new MBA 13' and getting used to OSX.

    I wanted to know what software you have that you recommend or really enjoy.

    thank you!!

    The post linked to above gives lots of information, but if I were to suggest only one app it would be Dropbox.

    Gives you access (as long as you are online) to everything you have, without having to clutter up your inbox.

    I limit the number of folders that's actually synced to one, and access everything else via the web version.

    I'd second that. :)

    I'd also recommend Pixelmator for photo editing.

    It really depends on what you're looking to do. Are you interested in games, that would cause a number of recommendations.

    Writing, or number crunching, well I'd vote for MS office and/or iWork.

    I agree for photo editing Pixelmator is a great app,
    Browse the Mac App store and see what tickles your fancy, ask about at MacRumors if you have a question about it.

    The bottom line - enjoy your new computer :)
