>>81047509homebrew and the other stuff you'd typically install on linux
>>81047536I’ll give them a try>>81047546I’ve never used linux
>>81047509A decent lightweight image editor. Don't need to get Adobe. Pixelmator Pro is great for most people (if you want vector and image editing, the Affinity suite is cool too). Logic if you're a musician. Out of the box though, Garage band is still great for non-pro work (but pros have used it too). Maybe get MainStage to compliment Garage band.Might as well set up a package manager for Unix stuff. Ports is older and has more applications (and builds from source, so it's slow), but Homebrew is a cinch (just turn off telemetry).
>>81047509Rectangleiina, though sometimes it's buggy so usually I default to mpvAmphetaminecoconutBatteryAlfrediTerm 2itsycalVoxMost of these Quick Look plugins: https://github.com/sindresorhus/quick-look-pluginsI used to use Little Snitch, and still recommend it, but now I just don't care and cba to crack it.
rectangleiterm2statsis that one of the m1 macbooks or a 2019 model? cant tell frim tbe pic
>>81047703I wish they had a arm port already.
brewalfredand some program that makes your top bar have monochrome so everything looks sleek. also if anyone knows of a similar option for GNOME I'd be very happy to hear about it
>>81047509if you have a laptop, macsfancontrol is useful if you're autistic about tempsdaisydisk is kinda like windirstat except not as janky-lookingfoobar2000, although barebones, is usable, and plays flac, unlike music/itunes
>>81047509Good thread OP, started using a 2019 16-inch MBP a couple months ago, appreciate the ideas.
>>81048466Those are all provided out of the box, I think. Which is good.
>>81047509tiles and app cleaner
>>81048544What app cleaners
>>81048818https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/when you drop a .app file in the trash bin it only deletes the .app and not the folders the program created app cleaner deletes the .app file and all files that have been created by it
>>81047561>Homebrew is a cinch (just turn off telemetry)First time using Homebrew myself...how do?
>>81047509A BLACKED subscription.
>>81049251brew analytics off
>>81047509Magnet, Alfred, IINA, Hazel, Hush, Daisydisk.If you're into programming: Dash.
will the fat basement dwellers of /g/ seethe if I buy a macbook air m1?
>brew>brew>home-brew>brewEverywhere that talks about package managers always uses Homebrew as their reference, but I was lead to believe that MacPorts had a better selection and was a cleaner install. Can anyone give a run down on one vs the other?
>>81047893MusicBee is the de facto best Windows/Mac audio player, it's one of the greatest pieces of freeware ever released. There is no reason to get foobar over it.
>>81051027i agree musicbee is good but it's not native on mac, unlike foobar, swinsian, vox, cog, etc...
>>81047509For me, just Rectangle and Amphetamine.

It's probably just because I've used them since Tiger, but I really like hot corners. I only have two set up, bottom right for "Expose" (now known as Mission Control) and bottom left for show desktop. I'm pretty sure there are gestures for them (at least Mission Control) but meh.
Anybody got an alternative to using the official Dropbox client on Mac? It fucking sucks balls and slows my machine to a crawl for hours. Tries to sync every time the machine is powered on.
>>81052580When I say sync on boot, I mean it literally uses all of the machine's resources to generate new checksums and compare them. It makes the computer unusable for about 4 hours each time. Selective sync doesn't seem to make a huge amount of difference.
>>81050916who cares? they're all neets with no job or boomers who aren't with the times
Volta for undervolting, or Voltageshift if you don't wanna pay. If you're on Intel.
>>81052580use dropbox from browser
>>81047614oh ho ho, devilish
>>81047509Ports and then install free software.
>>81047509why Gentoo obviously
Unironic reply, openemu. I don't understand why the devs made it mac exclusive.
>>81052223I knew i'd find an atpfmfag here eventually, good resource anon!
