I just did a fresh install (albeit of Tiger) on my Mini to prepare it for a new home. It wasn't that daunting of a task. I just put all of my apps that I downloaded, photos, etc. on a DVD. I made a burn folder on the desktop and just put everything in that, put in a blank DVD, then clicked "Burn" - it couldn't have been any easier. As far as "re-installing" goes, quite a bit of software for the Mac is just drag and drop into the Applications folder and you're done (with the exception of most larger apps). At any rate, it will take a little bit of time (a couple of hours), but as with any OS it will most likely run as close to perfect as it can with nothing on it, then adding additional programs shouldn't make it worse (at least in the Apple world, they did it right when it comes to keeping the OS locked away from the rest of the system).

Don't forget to use the reputation system!
