I’m waiting on Lion to come out this Summer, so I can shell out 130 bucks for the new OS, but it should be awesome and worth it. Anyway, here is the line up. I didn’t want to waste time looking for images of each app icon to scatter all over this post, so what you’re getting is a screenshot of my actual desktop and the name of each app according to order. Some are native Mac apps, but most are downloaded. A couple are free trials, but most are just plain free… or maybe they are actually still in my App Folder. Oh well, just check ’em out. Let me know whatcha’ think. Notice there is no clutter on the desktop and I went from cool wallpaper to a white screen. I don’t know. I kinda like it that way. Feels very Techy… which is what I am.¬†Sidenote: I’m a Graphic Designer. So some of these things I got just for the icons. I like a pretty dock and desktop. Strange, but that’s me.

The Line-Up:
