John Hawkins has posted a basic guide to computer maintenance. Since he explicitly refused to consider Mac maintenance in this, I'll do it for him.

1) Get a Mac
2) If you have a problem, and you can't solve it by quitting and restarting apps, reboot
3) In the remarkable situation that you still have a problem, reinstall the OS. Yes, over the existing OS. No, it won't kill your programs; Windows does that, but not Mac. It should take about 20 minutes.
4) Oh, and his tips on spam are fine. Those work for Mac users, too.

Perfect!
