Er, hate to burst your Apple-bashing bubble here, but I have a 600MHz iBook and OS X runs GREAT
. Better than on my 400MHz G4 tower. Much better, in fact. Heck, for that matter I also have an older 466MHz clamshell iBook SE, and Mac OS X runs great on that too, imperceptibly slower than the G4. How much RAM do you have in your iBook? I have 384MB in the 600 and 160MB in the 466. So, please, for God's sake, do not think you speak for "everyone here who has an iBook." In fact, based on other things I've seen and read, I think you largely speak just for yourself.
And to answer your question, it clearly states on the Apple site that no, it will not work because it requires a Radeon or an nVidia card. But that doesn't matter because it won't accelerate much anyway
. How often do you sit there with five transparent Terminals and genie them repeatedly while compiling a large project? Because that's basically what Quartz Extreme accelerates. It won't help one iota with window resizing or any of that. Improvements there will come from all of the other massively huge amount of work put into Jaguar. Do you realize how difficult it is to move an entire system to a new compiler? GCC3 even has a different C++ ABI (Application Binary Interface) for Christ's sake! I assume you do not realize this. Then you are not a developer, and none of today's announcements were targetted at you, anyway.
