    So, I got my brand new MacBook this morning. It is awesome. I am happy. It is a huge upgrade from the old G4 iBook.

    I now seem to have two copies of iWork. Any guesses? One is in a folder labeled iWork '08 the other are loose applications in the Applications folder. Now the weird part is that I have Pages and Keynote on the dock, but when I open a document in the finder, a new icon pops up on the dock... What the heck? Which do I delete? How do I delete an app?

    And so, what else needs doing? Brand new MacBook... What do ya'll think needs to be included as "necessary software" for a new Leopard user.

    Thanks

    Well you uninstall just by dragging to the trash, if I were you i would say try to figure out which is the newer one, then just trashing the old one.

    Yeah, that's what I figured... but it was good to hear my thoughts reciprocated by someone who knows more about what they're talking about.

    Thanks...

    So... I also seemed to have deleted my downloads stack. How do I get it back?

    Open your home folder in a Finder window, drag Downloads folder to Dock.
