Geek Out: Which Programs Can You Not Live Without?

The My Favorite Gadgets group is my go-to spot for figuring out which gadgets you can't live without, but what about programs? I'm curious because today I realized there is no way I could function without the Stickies program on my MacBook Pro.

As evidenced by the screen shot of my computer's desktop to the right, I use Stickies for everything from leaving casual notes to myself to serving as a clipboard for text I'm cutting and pasting in a document. I realize that Stickies comes standard on every single Apple computer, but that doesn't make it any less of a find! Which programs (standard or downloaded) can you not live without? Let me know in the comments below!

And, of course, if you're in a sharing mood, head over to the My Favorite Gadgets group to share your top tech toys!

OMG Geek that screen shot, all those stickies!!! I am obsessive about keeping windows closed and my desktop clean--I would go batty! When you did that post about how many tabs you had open I almost fainted too! I only use the stickies on my dashboard so I only see them when I need them, not on top of the screen all the time. I'm sure more people are like you than me though! And I also keep no files on my desktop, why have a Mac if you clutter the screen with files, it looks just like a PC to me then. (I just put them in a documents file in my dock).

Before Itunes reigned I couldn't live without Winamp. So simple and clean, plus its customizable. But as of right now I would have to say Microsoft's OneNote

Good question Ghostgirl! I found this one on CNET, which is free and got pretty good ratings: http://download.cnet.com/Stickies/3000-2074_4-10330903.html

Haha, having been a PC user for work for the last ten years, I haven't thought about stickies in a long time! Wonder if there's a windows equivalent?
