Fresh Mac Installs – November 2014
I just replaced my 5-year old 27″ iMac with a beautiful new 27″ Retina iMac. Normally it would be best to restore from a Time Machine backup but I decided that with 5 years of crud built up I would start from scratch. I'm sure I'll hate myself later.
It's fun to rethink what software I need every now and then. Here's the list of things I've installed so far.
- Bittorrent Sync
- zsh (and oh-my-zsh)
- Better Rename 9
- DEVONthink Pro Office
- TheBrain (and so also Java)
- Day One
- Photoshop CC
- Capture One Pro
- Photo Mechanic
- Final Cut Pro
It’s all mostly the usual suspects. No surprise there. I was surprised by Mutt and Vim, since I swore off terminal apps again recently. Also, Evernote is taking a more prominent spot in my workflow lately. Or I should say, again.
It feels great to start fresh, even though it eats up a couple of days.
