Mac OS X 10.6 – Apps I’ll Install

Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will be released in the next few weeks. I enjoy playing with new things, so it’s a given that I’ll be installing it as soon as it’s available. I haven’t done a clean install since 10.3, but, for no good reason, I’m going to start fresh with 10.6. After I wipe my drive, what will I install? I’ll start with iLife 09 and iWork 09, but I’ve decided I’ll skip Aperture and FileMaker this time round. I also won’t be installing Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and dozens of other apps I own. Here’s my list of what I will be installing:

It’s possible/likely some of the listed apps won’t be available for 10.6, at least not right out of the gate.
