Congrats on the purchase Andrew! I'm sure you'll love it, I haven't been 
able to put mine down since I've gotten it :-)

I'll echo what Dennis said about Vmware and spaces, they are two things 
I use very much myself. Unity mode with a Windows install is the coolest 
thing I have ever seen. You can run apps in their own window that is 
part of the VM environment.

Once you install Xcode you should have all the tools needed to compile 
Xastir. I haven't tried that yet, I downloaded it off Macports, but when 
I get some free time I'm gonna give it a go.

Have fun!
