TUAW’s "How I set up my Mac" series

The reviews are over an done with. People already have Leopard purring inside their Macs. The Unofficial Apple Weblog team has done a tremendous job in covering all things Leopard; from retail to computers. Still continuing their watch over the new cat, the team will be putting up their own experiences during and after the installation of Mac OS 10.5. The series is called “How I set up my Mac” and first on the bat is Nik Fletcher.

Nik Fletcher’s installation went rather quick. He first made a full system backup, which he confessed to rarely ever doing, and then did a clean install. It was completed in about 15 minutes (Hint: do not include localization or the language pack as well as all the printer drivers that comes with Leopard. Unless you plan to use your Mac in German or Swahili, don’t bother with localizations.) He did Migration Assistant, copied back his iTunes library and Keychain and he was good to go.

He then proceeded to install his essentials applications (head on over the link for find out more) and twiddled with Stacks. He says his best new feature is Quick Look (Can’t wait to try this out) but he dislikes the Dock’s 3D effect.
