For the last year or so I have been using a Apple PowerBook G4 with the lastest OS X version but the problem is I don't have any non-standard software for it. So basically it is a Internet surfing and e-mail expensive toy.
On a PC I typically use Dreamweaver MX for web design and FTP and Photoshop CS for photo editing. Occassionally I use video editing software but my MiniDV camera is not compatible with my PowerBook. I also use Microsoft Power Point and Word for work purposes.
What are some programs that are FREE that would allow me the same type of programs on a Mac? Besides a WYSIWYG, Office Application and Photo Editing software what are some cool programs to use on a Mac? I am a techie yet new to the Mac world, and can't afford Dreamweaver and Photoshop for my Mac.
