Hey folks, I am expecting to receive my first ever Mac today (27" i5 iMac) and I couldn't be more excited to finally be a part of the cult. I was never really dis-satified being a (mostly) windows user but it just felt like the right time for a change. Anyway, I know quite a bit about OSX as I have been running it as part of a dual boot solution for close to a year on a :gasp: hackintosh, but I have just a few questions in preparations for my new baby arriving today. 1. Is there any benefit to doing a complete format/reinstall with OSX on a brand spankin new iMac? I have read conflicting reports on this forum so any reasons as to why or why-not would also be appreciated. 2. I plan on using bootcamp and dual-booting Windows 7 once the proper bootcamp drivers are finally released (I could do it before but I am in no rush) for a few games but more importantly, for my ZuneHD (I wish Microsoft would just make Zune software for OSX ). I also own a 32gb iPod touch but I absolutely love my ZuneHD especially with Microsoft's subscription service. My question is pretty simple, I would like my music collection to be accessible between both Windows 7 (in the Zune software) and OSX (in iTunes) on my new machine. Is there anyway to accomplish that without actually having to store my collection twice (once on each partition)? I know that OSX can read NTFS partitions but I wasn't sure if I could point iTunes directly to that folder for its music (and keep its database on the mac drive obviously since it cant write NTFS). 2a. If I somehow can store my music only on my NTFS partition and have both accessing it correctly, is there anyway to use time-machine to automatically backup those files as well (since I have a 1tb external HD that I will be using for TM). Thanks ahead of time for any responses. Update: As I was typing this, it arrived!
