    I am not aware of any but you could be more successful in your search.
    I just Googled for Mac Bit Torrent and downloaded the first one I saw. I havent heard of any real good ones.
    Yes
    Try VLC for playing videos, Acquisition for downloading music/videos/etc. For a cool but somewhat unessicary app, look for some sort of temperature monitor program to see how hot you are running. Hope this helps.

    here.
    If you're looking for P2P and torrent apps, why on earth would you want a "free" word processor? Now, with that being said...

    Torrent, this is what I use:
    http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18286

    P2P, you've got a ton of decent apps out. Granted I haven't used them in ~a year, but... you can do your own research on those...www.versiontracker.com

    Acquisition
    Poisoned
    XFactor
    ACQLite

    I use Roxio Toast(http://www.roxio.com/en/products/toast/index.jhtml) for ANYTHING I want to burn. p2p will be your friend with that...

    Accessories for your iPod, depends on what you want, but, read through the reviews at www.ipodlounge.com

    Uninstall a program = drag er in the trash, yep. :bigthumb:

    Other apps I use quite a bit...
    Adium, a multi chat client http://www.adiumx.com/
    MPlayer, search for it...

    anything else...search for the thread asking about specific programs, and what people use...it's a decent starter anyhow.
