    Can anyone see if the Powerbook numbers back in 10.3.7? If not, I still believe the G5 pbook is still coming.

    Anyone notice improvements in 3D or browsing speeds? I've tested World of Warcraft and Safari and notice slight improvements, as well as general zippiness of OS X as a whole. Although it could just be placebo.

    I'm afraid to install this update. I had so many problems after upgrading from 10.3.3 to 10.3.4, and after to .3.5 and .3.6. I saw almost no improvements at all on my system since 10.3.3, and had some nasty problems. So I downgraded to 10.3.3, about one month ago and I'll wait.



    Dual G4 867MHz, 1.5 GB ram, ATI 9800 Pro video card.

    Care to explain how you did that? The only approach I know of to work without causing more problems is to backup, reformat, reinstall 10.3, and then work up through the upgrades to 10.3.3.

    Is there native support for any dual-layer DVD burners? I know that there is patchburn and toast but I've been waiting for Apple support before I buy any of those drives.

    I've installed it and certain graphic functions definately seem faster. For me I notice it most when scrolling menus and web pages in Mozilla.

    Yes, I was forced to backup and reformat the HD, and reinstalling everything from the backup :-( Insane night, at that time, but now everything is okay.

    I've updated, without any issues, but I checked the version number of Preview before I upgraded to 10.3.7 and it seems to be the same as the post-update Preview.



    10.3.6 - 2.1.0 (v211)

    10.3.7 - 2.1.0 (v211)



    So much for an updated version of Preview for me.



    Can someone who hasn't updated check the version number of Preview and post it here? Maybe I'm just on glue.

    Why reformat the drive? What's wrong with a plain old archive and install?

    You can't archive and install over a *newer* OS version that I know of.

    Hmmm. I wonder why I still have the old version of Preview?
