Making OS X Lion work

Luckily just got my hands on a new and funky macbook pro with OS X Lion to help with user support. Here's how to turn it from a pretty paperweight into a computer (i.e. install compilers)

(1) install your updates to latest OS X
(2) get apple ID for app store
(3) install XCode from app store
(4) register as apple developer
(5) XCode -> preferences -> download (add command-line tools) -> install

Thanks Frank. I was also told about where to get decent fortran compilers as well: http://r.research.att.com/tools/
