Mac OS X "OS X 10.9, which is internally codenamed 'Cabernet', will focus on various 'power-user' enhancements and take core features from iOS, according to our sources. Unlike operating system updates such as OS X Leopard and OS X Lion, OS X 10.9 will likely not be an overhauled approach to how the operating system feels and functions." Features for power users and features from iOS? Seems like an oxymoron. Still, if they manage to finally fix the Finder and Spaces, I'll be happy.

1) BetterSnapTool: Lets me tile windows side-by-side just like Windows 7 "Aero snap" does. I couldn't live without it and honestly, I don't know how anyone else does either.


The snap drives me mad in Windows 7! It works really poorly on dual monitors.

2) TotalFinder (or XtraFinder)


One day I might try it, but I have no issues with Finder personally. But then I didn't come to it expecting it to work like Windows/a Linux DE/BeOS.

3) Default Folder X: It lets me right-click and take action on files/folders within Open/Save dialogs!


That's actually one of the biggest security flaws in Windows. Lock down your system, restrict users access - then let them open whatever they like via the Open dialog. Yes, one can also prevent this hole - but it's amazing how frequently it isn't plugged!

4) SecondBar: Because I want a menu bar on my second monitor. It just makes sense, no?


No. Shortcuts. That and, in my workflow, the second monitor is used for more static content.

5) NTFS-3G


Just use network shares? Mounting any non native file system is icky.

6) Time Machine Scheduler


Agree

7) iPhoto Library Manager: because iPhoto itself seems incapable of maintaining a non-corrupt library, even though I barely use it.


It has been getting progressively worse.

8) Enqueue: because iTunes doesn't let me play files off a network share.


Google Music. I listen to my music at home or work with nothing more than Chrome.

9) TextWrangler


Textmate 2. Nothing less will suffice.
