My must have Open Source Software for your Mac

If you are a Mac user like me you are likely to fall in the category of ‘once you mac you can’t go back’. I was a PC/Windows user for many years until I discovered the world of Apple while working for a tech company during the late 1990s. Since then my love for Apple and it’s simplicity of products, design, security and privacy has won me over. When Apple introduced OS X in 2001 based on the Unix architecture the door for third-party applications was opened and allowed many to pursue the route of Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) on the Mac environment.
