    AppTrap

    Not sure if it is of use to anyone on the apple mac platform but I have found it very useful for un-installing apps ( App Trap that is )

    Meh. Apple users don't deserve free and open source software. If they're crazy enough and/or have enough money to pay for a Mac then they can damn well pay for all the software too!

    There are a good bunch of OSS folks on twitter (Miles Berry, etc) and there are a number of things that crop up on there that are quite brilliant.

    Apple - Downloads
