Hi guys,



For those who do not have a dual G5 or are eagerly anticipating yours, I have made a quicktime movie of my dock launching 15 apps: (2.9MB QT)



Dual G5/1.5GB/9600 Launching my 15 most used apps!!



enjoy, and I am eager to see your responses.

    Fast...looks like the only slow apps are Adobe's (understandable) and Microsoft's (incomprehensible). A word-processor app taking more than one bounce is really stupid.



    Other than that, looks like the G5 is really frickin' fast.

    Yes, MS Word is THE slowest app to launch. - Crazy!!!

    OMFG. If I did that with my PowerBook I'd have time to make a pot of coffee and drink it.



    Damn you for making me want one, jerk.



    (BTW, this is me saying I AM VERY IMPRESSED)

    Wanna know why Microsoft stuff is bloated, because microsoft does not remove old code, even if it is not needed, most of the old code they dont even know what it does, but if they remove it, it breaks the app so they leave it(this is true in the windows version anyways). thats what I was told when i used to do support for them. imagine that....

    maybe for this case it's because Suitcase X1 is open...

    i know that Word don't like Suitcase very well.

    I've gotta better idea. Command click all the apps you want to open at once in a Finder window, then record the movie, and hit Cmd-O.



    That would be impressive!



    That's true simultaneuosenism! m.

    Your wish is my command/click:

    I;m very satisfied with the overall speed on my G5 1.8. Word is ONE BOUNCE. Nice.

    I just did the same on my G5 1.6GHz. Damn I wish I had spent a bit more and got the 1.8 at least.



    I only have 1GB of RAM though, so that may be the problem. It's significantly slower than the dual 2GHz...

    It's just pinned to the right side...The only reason I do that is to keep the Trash icon stationary.

    Slightly off topic -- which program are you using to capture the video for the tests?

    I'm using snapzpro for jaguar. its good for small things hence I did not do a full screen capture. Small window captures play smoothly.

    A lot of this has to do with RAM. I have 1GB in my TiBook 1Ghz, and like to launch all the apps in the dock in front of PC using friends to show the the stability of OS X. By the way, when I've done this in Windows, the shit tends to hit the fan.



    Anyway, I can open

    Terminal

    ProjectBuilder

    TextEdit

    Universe Modeler 5 (Electric Image)

    Universe Animator 5 (Electric Image)

    Photoshop 7

    Quark 6

    Preview

    Adobe Reader 6

    iTunes

    Safari

    Adium

    Mail

    Address Book



    Fairly quickly as in under 10secs.

    Jeez, I'm surprised no one has asked how the hell my 1.6 G5 is so slow...

    I forgot to mention that it's actually a G3 700 iMac with 512MB of RAM.







    Thought it might start a little 1.6GHz owner uproar... apparently this forum is less busy than I thought.

    I would assume Ambrosia's SnapzX Pro. Nice little app.

    i see no dock preference item for "pinning"

    is there a haxie or some other UI mod required?
