THE OFFICIAL MACINTOSH THREAD.
for pretty much everything made by Apple that is not the iPod.
So I made the original thread when I first got my iMac Core Duo. Since then I've pretty much figured out what you need to get everything up to snuff.
: This will cover pretty much everything except QT. EDIT: VLC now handles WMV like a charm, so yay!
: Plug this into QT to handle all your WMV/wmv streaming needs.
Loads better than this other shit, does pretty much everything, though annoyingly doesn't let you pick individual files out of torrents. Native and lightweight though, with some decent features.
: My personal favorite, with a great suite of options, and it seems to have more success in general at connecting to trackers.
Bits on Wheels
: Kinda bare-bones, but completely native, if thats your thing.
: My personal favorite chat program, and probably the only one you'll need besides...
: mIRC for the mac. Yessir.
: If you have an XBOX360, but not a PC, and want music etc. on your BOX, this is your program.
: If you don't use the mighty mouse (and who could blame you?) or even if you do, you will probably like this plug in.
Based on HandBrake, which used to be the best at ripping DVDs. Now this is, though it's about to be reforked in HandBrake.
Allows you to use your gMail account for storing files. Good to have a secure backup, and could potentially be sued to share files ( I tihnk. I'm still working on the details)
Shows your hard drive ina fancy tree view letting you know where all that space has gone.
Also make sure to check out Apple's site
now and then, they put up nice streams of all their keynotes, and have some great support.
So, yeah, ... macs rule.
