That's a better list then some of the others I've seen. Thanks.
I use my mbp as my primary computer, running XP within fusion. I striped my xp install down to 4.2gb, I do all my work from it when I need to remotely login to a customer server.
Windows Remote Desktop on a Mac sucks imo. I use CoRD.
Here is my app folder.
VLC, Perian, Flip4Mac, Toast Titanium, AppCleaner, UnRarX, Coconut Battery, iStat, i'm sure there are more but those are some apps I recommend. Also get an SSD, with a 160GB intel ssd in mine OS X boots up in about 9 seconds, apps open on one bounce. Its the shit, but I am a strong supporter of ssd's. If your gonna torrent on your mac, use uTorrent also, Transmission isn't as good imo.
Multiclutch is pretty awesome for gestures.
Hot Corners are a must for spaces, expose, and screen saver also since there is no way to "lock" the desktop I have my screensaver hot cornered to the bottom left and it requires a password after 5 seconds.
MacRumors is a good forum to check out
