I have no idea why you have issues with your iBook G4. I have a 500 MHz PowerBook G3 (Pismo) that is wonderful. The only thing that i can think of is that I have ample free capacity on the PowerBook's replacement HDD.   This gets back to your original question. I have a 3-year-old MacBook Pro running OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion, two PowerMac G5s [one 2004; the other, 2005] running MacOS X 10.4.11 (Tiger), and the PowerBook G3 (Pismo) also running 10.4.11. All give...
Three things: Flip4Mac is endorsed by Microsoft. Microsoft provides server space from which the codec can be downloaded. However, Flip4Mac is produced by Telestream, not Microsoft. As far as I know, Codec 3.6.2 is a part of DivX. You imply that you have installed DivX. Which version did you install? The Flip4Mac WMV Component is a codec that brings WMV-compatibility to QuickTime. I have Flip4Mac installed and recommend that you install it as well. However,...
  Where to begin? Despite having transitioned the Macintosh to new processors about 20 years ago and again in 2006, your position appears to be that it is not possible to do so again. Suffice it to say, I disagree. I will repeat a statement made above: Power Mac G3s ran MC68040 code faster in emulation than Macintosh Quadras ran it natively.   As for Intel code, the emulator does not have to emulate every aspect of the Intel processor. It need only emulate every aspect of...
Huh? Some of us don't get out much.   Apple transitioned the Mac from Motorola/Freescale's 68k processor family to the IBM/Motorola/Freescale PowerPC. Macs running both architectures ran Windows in emulation. PPC-based Macs ran 68k transparently. Apple sold a Power Macintosh/SoftWindows bundle for those who wanted to run Windows on their Macs. The PPC G3 ran 68k-based code in emulation faster than the most recent 68k-based Macs ran it natively. Eventually, VirtualPC...
  You are absolutely correct. People seem to forget if they ever knew that the original development systems for the Xbox 360 were Apple Power Mac G5s running Windows NT. This was years after Microsoft "dropped" PPC support in Windows NT. 
By Pro, I assume that you mean MacBook Pro. How large is your hard drive and how much free space does it have?
If Office 2011 is slow and unresponsive on your system, then the problem is on your system. We can't fix a problem on your system until you give some information about your system.
I have my iPhone is a case. So that would be a "No."
  This is not the best way and it is not how Apple does business. When Apple needs its own manufacturing capacity, it uses its cash reserves to build the factory capacity for its contractor.
