when I downloaded it, and since then I've thrown it away. Has anyone
had a positive experience with Audacity on OS X?

For MacOS X, we recommend the latest beta version of Audacity (1.1.1).
Although it is still in development, 1.1 is actually more stable and
functional on OS X than 1.0 was.
Note: Audacity 1.1 cannot (yet) read project files created by 1.0.

DMG ("disk image") files are a common but slightly confusing way to
distribute software for MacOS X. Make sure that you copy all of the
files from the disk image onto your hard drive. If you only create a
shortcut or alias to a file on the disk image, then MacOS will not be
able to use the shortcut unless the disk image is open.
After copying the files to your hard drive, you can throw out the dmg.
[Since these problems are fairly common, we may ship future versions of
Audacity for OS X in a compressed archive, as we do for OS 9.]
