Setting up your MacBook for ROR

I am getting my new MacBook today and was wondering if the experts on
this list might have some tips and pointers about what they do to set up
their Macs as a RubyonRails dev machine?

I come from a windows background and some of this is essential there.
But in the case of Macs do you recommend,

* installing the OS from scratch
* adding/removing any default applications from the install
* any other system/OS level tuning

I do intend to use the Hivelogic/Geoffrey Grosenbach's tips to get the
Ruby, Rails, MySQL, Mongrel setup done. Suggestions/comments welcome.



This is how we setup our laptops at PLANET ARGON... just we use PostgreSQL not MySQL... but the rest should be helpful to you.


Good luck!
