I'm going to loose my precious MacBook Pro since I'm quitting my current job.
So just few days before I'm handing it off I'm backing up my personal files and preparing a list of stuff I need to install when I'll get my
- QuickSilver - obviously. A necessity for every
Macuser interested in productivity and not afraid of the keyboard.

- MagiCal - Far better then the default
Needless to mention, but there's also Skype, Adium, Firefox, NeoOffice, Gimp, VLC, Acrobat, The Unarchiver, and probably few other basic/trivial apps I forgot about.
