    Microsoft Office 2008 - office suit with word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, like Office 07 for Windows.

    iWork 08 - kicks Microsoft Office's ass any day. Office suite but better.

    VLC - played everything I threw at it thus far (fyi, I've used this approx. 2 years) media player, audio and video.

    Transmission - bittorrent client. use it when some software companies use torrents to download the software.

    Firefox - when I need to visit my local college's web courses, safari doesn't work for some reason.

    TextWrangler - nice text editor, programmer's tool.

    VisualHub - no longer being developed, but converts a lot of video files

    AudialHub - like VisualHub but it converts audio instead of video.

    UnRarX - winrar but for mac.

    Skype - im/audio/video messaging client

    ScreenFlow/iShowU - screencast apps, they record your screen.



    Think that's 10.. too lazy to count. :D

    3. Mellel
    4. DEVONThink Pro Office
    5. Bookends
    6. Scrivener
    7. VMWare Fusion
    8. VLC Media Player
    9. OmniOutliner Pro
    10. Quicksilver

    Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac is a bad piece of software. I wish it was streamlined as Office 2007 for Windows. But it is not; it is just bloated, so I simply cannot put it on the Top 10.
