El D,

I've been using AVG for about two years now, free home edition. Recently when I start up it tells me it's going to expire soon. Is this just BS? Or can I renew it? If not I'll gladly pay the $40 or whatever for their services. I've been very pleased with it.

Just that version is expiring. Simply upgrade to the new free version, no need to pay.

I really like mac osx a lot. most programs that I really need (calendar, mail client, etc) are built in, I can compile and run all manner of open source software (tomcat/apache/etc). even the common apps are really well designed and useful, for instance the calculator does currency conversion.

in addition stuff like the launchy application astro posted is built in to osx.

For those mentioning AIM/messaging clients like

GAIM, Trillian, Meebo

which of these have logging as a feature? I still use an old AIM version with DeadAIM because the logging feature is so great. I highly recommend using logging -- it makes it so easy to go back and remember what movie you were talking about, what link you sent a few days ago, etc.

I dunno about the all in one clients....but the new version of AIM has logging and is quite good and removes any reason to use an old version with deadAIM (Which is what I was using before as well)

I use Trillian and it saves everything you typed with someone (right-click the person in your list and click 'View Contact History')
