    Luckily Apple thought ahead with the iTunes resize slowness. Try command-clicking to resize to do it quicker the old fashioned way.

    Resizing the main window in iPhoto is even worse than in iTunes.

    That's actually reversed on slower computers. I wish some other programs would do that too.

    I think only G4 and newer machines do the live resizing in iTunes.

    Can't speak for that person, but I have a new 1.2 Mini with the bare 256mb and windows resize fast. iTunes' slow window resizing is a problem with the program itself.



    I think Apple has intentionally covered up the need to defrag your hard drive with techno-babble smoke and mirrors. Maybe they're too lazy to write one, or they bought the "Unix doesn't need defragging" urban legend. I've read where they say, "OSX doesn't need it because of Unix this and that, blah blah blah..." but try this: either use a defrag utility or backup, wipe your drive and start over. 8)

    not only do we get it, but we get it usually as a download a week or so before it's available to purchase or announced ;-)

    Huh, heh, heh, you said "sack".





    Oh BTW, OS X already defrags smaller files on the fly, and it concentrates frequently used files into a "hot zone" on the HD for optimum performance. Defragging and optimizing with Norton or TechTool would only slow OS X down. However file access speed has nothing to do with window resizing.

    Yea window resizing is something the engineers should work on, not because it will improve productivity or improve your ability to navigate windows much, but because it is the most obvious indicator of a slower UI that will continue to give windows users something to whine about.

    it also gives you the impression your computer is slower.
