What Gtd Apps do you use


I just ordered a new imac 24" souped up box , as some who may know me I have used linux for the past 10 years .I have never used an apple computer. Can you guy's give me some ideas as to what GTD apps you favor and why The reason I post here is because Merlin uses mac [ he should get commission on my sale] and many of you use it , so where better to learn.

Another deadline looming, so I switched tools to avoid having to think about it too much. Again.

I love OmniFocus, but I kept messing up my projects and contexts. The projects especially: I tried organizing them into folders, and subfolders and then the actual project had tasks and subtasks... and in the end I spent too much time wondering where to put my stuff.

It was hard to switch to TaskPaper, because I lost so many cool features (plus all the money I spent on OF). But after a couple of days of using it I feel the limitations have set me free.

Until the next deadline, anyway.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
