As my main computer (13” first generation Intel Macbook) is nearing its 4th birthday, I’ve come to realize that I really only have a handful of Applications that I “need.” Out of the 181 that I have on my computer, I’m starting to wonder if a simple start-from-scratch-by-erasing-and-installing-the-OS is something to consider in the very near future. So I’ve been thinking – which Applications would be the first to install should I do a refresh of my laptop? Here’s the list I came up with:
NetNewsWire – can’t be without my RSS Feeds, and I’ve fell in love with this reader, both on my Mac and on my iPhone.
iWork – Yes, maybe I’m a nerd. But I’m a big fan of productivity, efficiency, and software that allows me the flexibility to create anything I need and want. Without a doubt, my favorite Apple software out there.
Of course, there are probably more that could be added to this list, but I figured I’d keep it down to 5. ‘Sides, you wouldn’t want me to list out all 181 anyway…do you?
Let me know in the comments if you think I missed one.
