Confessions of a Switcher (part 2)

This is part 2 in a theoretically infinite series.

Two weeks in and I am finding myself really happy with the Mac, with OS X and with life in general. OS X’s Unix-y roots means it’s very hackable and its popularity means there is lots of good open-source or otherwise community-supported software out there, plus it seems most of the software I used in Windows has Mac versions. Just a short list of the third-party (i.e. not Apple) software I’m using so far:
(“w” means used on Windows, otherwise it’s new to me)

I’ve just installed and am trying out VMWare Fusion, which pulls the Boot Camp Windows XP partition into a virtual instance running inside OS X. It seems that the only way to install some software onto the Windows Mobile device is by running an installer in Windows, and I don’t want to have to reboot into XP via Boot Camp just to do that.
