Top-rated Free Software for the Mac

Image via Wikipedia

Free software used to be pretty naff in the bad old days (I’m talking in the days of DOS and pre-System  on the Mac). Today, free software is now more frequently referred to as ‘Open Source’ and many applications are not only free but of excellent quality. Some applications are better than the stuff you pay for, even software that costs hundreds of dollars! An example would be Blender.

Here is my recommended list:

Maintenance & Optimization

OnyX 2.0.4
Maintenance 1.2.5
OmniDiskSweeper 1.7
Cocktail 3.7

Backup Software

Silverkeeper 2.0.1
rsyncbackup 1.0

Diagnostic Software

Mac HelpMate 2.1
iStat Menus 1.3


Audacity 1.3.7 RC2


Blender 2.49 RC1
