Chris,

I am now busy setting up my new Mac Pro, and I agree wholehearted with your preference for Things over OmniFocus as a GTD/To Do manager. Omni is an excellent company, and I’m using OmniOutliner to help keep track of the process of installing new software and moving decades of information from Windows to OS X. But I am more comfortable with the flexibility of Things than the more set structure of OmniFocus.

And Scrivener seems wonderful for a similar reason. As a writing program I love its ability to flexibly structure a developing work and store random thoughts and information.
