It's about 12h since I am working with Mac OS X and I am more or less getting used to it. There are some things that are not (yet) working as I like them to work, but I think I will get this figured out as well.
I've tried out a bunch of software, but I think that I finally found the configuration that works best for me:
- Browser: Safari (with some plugins from www.pimpmysafari.org)
- Mail: Apple's Mail.app (with GPGMail)
- Calendar Application: Apple's iCal.app (with SpanningSync to sync my Google Calendar)
- IRC/IM: Colloquy, Skype, PSI
- Audio-Player: Cog
- Terminal: iTerm with zsh/screen
- Mobile sync: PocketMac
- Office stuff: iWork '08
- Programming: vim
- Photography stuff: Lightroom, Photoshop
That's all I need for efficient working and I have to admit, that on Mac OS X you can work very efficient. All in all I am very pleased with my new toy (especially the battery duration is awesome: >5 hours while working as usual).
