Moving to a newly purchased MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard OS, from an much older MacBook with Leopard OS and probably a decade's worth of remnants of older systems, unused apps, earlier software upgrades, partially removed software, and other cruft. So: 1) Is there a simple way (a "deinstall" option) to remove _all_ traces of Mathematica app and supporting files from older machine, before migrating to the newer machine? (I don't mind losing any customizations I've done or prefs I've set; and I'll save all my personal .nb notebooks separately). 2) If not, then a way to find and remove all Mathematica-related files manually? (.) 3) Since I have the Mathematica 7.0.1 CD and know the serial and license numbers, I don't expect any trouble reinstalling it on the new machine -- but just in case, are there any special de-authorizing or re-authorizing steps required? (All the crap with Apple's iPod and iPad authorization nonsense has me spooked.)
