I want to give someone a copy of Final Cut Pro X as a gift. But since there's no physical package anymore, I can't figure out how to do it, and I'm feeling pretty dumb. I thought maybe an iTunes Gift Certificate, but Apple.com says "iTunes Gift Cards and Certificates can be redeemed for songs, albums, audiobooks, videos, and games on the iTunes Store. They cannot be used to buy Apple products." Help? [more inside]

What are the Mac equivalents of great Windows software? This
was a great question about what a Mac person should install on a Windows box. I'm going the other way, as my office kindly bought me a new MacBook Pro. I'm a scientist and haven't used a Mac since OS 7.5. For the past decade my machines have been Windows, Linux, or dual-boot. Freeware/shareware programs I use a lot under Windows: Cygwin, Essential PIM, FLVplayer, IrfanView, Maxima, Openoffice.org, Scilab, Winamp, Xemacs, Xplorer2 pro. Commercial software: Mathematica, IDL, occasionally Microsoft Office. I'm mostly interested in freeware or shareware such as great text and image editors, tex/latex, and other nerdware. Thanks! Naturally, the new laptop runs Leopard.

Can anyone recommend easy to install, cross platform monitoring software for Mac OS X - that is, something that would allow a parent, employer or teacher to, from their PC, monitor the screen of a Macintosh? Will remote desktop do this? Is it relatively easy to install?

Having recently finished Getting Things Done
(and after following 43 Folders
for some time), I'm inspired to organize my life. I've gathered supplies and plan to organize my physical life this weekend. My on-line life (based on a Mac) needs help, though. How do you stay organized on your Mac? Do you use iCal
? (It still seems so buggy to me.) What e-mail program do you use? Is Microsoft's Entourage
all that? I know about Quicksilver
, but can you recommend other little apps to keep my digital life organized and worry free? (Tips on physical GTD organization are welcome, too.)

MultipleMoniterFileter: My Google-Fu is suprisingly useless today. I know there's a utility for OSX that allows one mouse to move across all networked monitors, but cannot locate it.

I'm looking for a good turbo listing program for ebay (I know I know) that works with Macintosh (OS 10.3). I have found one called GarageSale. Does anyone have experience with this or any other turbolister? I would prefer a shareware/free program, but am willing to pay if the program is highly recommended.

OS X: All of a sudden clicking things on the menu bar of any program makes a SF-like "click" noise. (I checked under sounds in the system preferences and noises from the interface is unchecked.) It happens when I click on the Apple in the top right or the program name and sometimes File. I have not installed any news software. My question is: WTF? [more inside]

Academics and scholars: anyone familiar with the text processing product on Windows called Nota Bene
? A friend is switching to Macintosh and it's an application area I don't have a lot of experience with. In particular, he likes the fact that Nota Bene stores citation information separate from the formatting, so switching from MLA to APA (?) is easy to do... Any suggestions welcomed.
