Congratulations, I think you'll love your new Macbook. I have 3! I  
have found "Spaces"(like linux' workspaces) and VMWare to be a great  
way to get all my favorite(and not so favorite MS) flavors of OSes and  
apps running on one hardware platform. There is even a xastir/ VMWare  
already installed and compiled with it's own OS on Xastir's site.

There is something to be said for compiling your own software. Soon  
after OSX came out I was running Xastir natively under X11 with Curt's  
help. On your OSX install discs are the Xcode Development tools you  
need to compile your own software. If you look under "optional  
installs" you should find the packages you need.
