Have finally taken the plunge and my new macbook air 11.6" ultimate has arrived. I am a long time linux and windows user and this is my first mac. My question is - what do mac experts do/install in setting up their machines on arrival? Obviously your answers will be subjective but it will help to give me some ideas. To set the context, if this was a new windows laptop that had arrived I would immediately repartition, setup dual boot, install a linux flavour, use partimage to save an image of the windows partition so I could recreate it if necessary. Would then install various windows software items that I tend to use. Would install cygwin to get linux tools on windows, then rsync my files to the machine. Use the linux partition to setup a local webserver (for managing a local database), setup local dovecot imap server coupled with offline imap to maintain a maildir archive of my emails etc etc. I don't plan to use dual boot on the MBA but will use vmware to have a virtual windows machine. I am hoping that most of my standard linux tasks can be done with OS X so was not planning to have any linux flavour on the MBA.
