June Demo by Thomas Carlson

Except for DragThing, all are OSX apps.

DragThing 2.9
DragThing is an application dock designed to tidy up the icons littering your desktop. Simply drag an application from the Finder onto an empty square in a dock and then drag documents onto it as normal. Double-click a docked application to launch it or bring it to the front. In addition, the docks can contain files, folders, disks and servers, and there is also an option to display the currently running processes in a special dock.

DragThing also has the ability to store and organise Internet URLs in docks and you can double-click them to open the URL with an appropriate helper application. You can drag URLs into any dock and edit them, and also import and export docks as HTML.

DragThing requires at least System 7.5.5 (8.0 or later recommended) and a Macintosh with a minimum of a Motorola 68020 or PowerPC 601 processor. Storing URLs in docks requires the Internet Config extension to be installed, version 2.0 or later. The application is distributed as a fat binary with both regular 68K and native PowerPC versions included. Shareware $20.

The GIMP: The Hadjaha Release OSX
The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is designed to be a professional image manipulation program suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It is BIG (over 50 MB)! Free

SETI@home 3.03 OSX
This is the OS X client for the collaborative SETI effort. SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. Free.

TinkerTool 1.2 OSX
Do you want the trashcan back on your desktop where it was in Mac OS 9? Would you like translucent terminal windows? Do you want to have all hidden files and folders displayed in the Finder? All that and many more hidden options of Mac OS X can be activated with the TinkerTool utility. Free.

Waurie 1.0b1 OSX
Mancala-type game played in the Cayman Islands. Free.

Wumpus 2.0.1 OSX
Wumpus is a graphical adaptation of a classic puzzle game. You're tasked with exploring unknown caverns to catch the legendary Wumpus. The caves are full of hazards, but you can avoid them by paying keen attention to your senses, along with a bit of deduction and luck. Free.
