1) Slow? No, not to me.
2) Quicktime can read MPEG, .mov, .avi and more. QuickTime does not read Real format files, and RealOne is not yet available for either Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X.
3) You can use DropZip and Stuffit Expander to create or expand .zip files.
4) most web browsers, Microsoft Office, almost anything from Adobe and Macromedia, Corel applications, etc.
5) Yes.
