48 hours on Mac

So I've had the iBook for about 48 hours now. The first 10 where quite annoying, had no idea where my applications went, how to "right-click" or even where stuff go in the file system.
Googled a bit and found a few nice tools to sort me out.

  • Fink offers a number of nice GNU-tools to make the shell a bit more familiar.
  • Virtue provides cool spinning virtual desktops
  • Quicksilver offers a nice "CLI" interface to most apps. I.e. pause iTunes with applekey-space and the command pau.
  • Firefox ... of course.
  • Transmission. Decent torrent client.

    Found most of the programs over at

    The desktop resolution on the 12" screen is a bit low, 1024x768. Not the massive 1600 resolution I got on my old Dell.
