    After repairing permissions, Exposé and Spotlight are quite noticeably faster and more responsive on my 17" 1Ghz PB G4 with 512MB of ram.

    this update will be my last effort at getting my home linksys airport network rolling correctly under tiger (long story...). if it still doesn't work, i'm just dropping cat5 down from the ceiling.

    OhhhhhhhHhhhhHh!



    I can change the teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, way-too-small font in the Mail folders now. R0x0rz AppuL! It also failed to destroy my GPG and Mail Act-On extensions, which still work. Shocked I am, aghast, amazed, and very surprised!



    And iTunes is tEh snaPpY again! For those keeping score, iTunes has seriously lacked, uhm, anything approaching speed and beachballed 2 deth since 5.0. Gonna party like it's 4.X again.



    Average visualizations frame rate is back up to 30fps where I've capped it, instead of limping along at 12-17fps, which is the pathetic speed it's been going at since 5.X +



    Also, iTunes no longer mangles video. It Just Works! Hooray!



    I admit, deep down inside, I was hurt and emotionally scarred when my music started to grind to a halt. I mean, I fill up my PowerBook with 2GB, I have my tunes on a FireWire 800 drive going at 7200RPM and *THAT* was how Apple thanked me? Bad Steve, bad, bad, bad Steve.



    More super-exciting discoveries as I make them.



    <Bowing down to Saint Jobs> We are healed!



    10.4.3 did overwrite and erase all of Micro$oft Orfice, but I'm unsure whether or not this is a feature.



    Dunno 'bout Airport reception, I have 2GB, works for me. 'Course I'm using a PowerBook 1.5GHz; not upgrading until Rev B. Intels. I think I'll just skip the whole entire, "And there's SMOKE coming out of the screen, everything is broken, nothing works, I h4t3 apPUl!!#@!1!" rev A noise. I do occasionally hafta use the computer to, hmm, what's that word, oh yes: work.



    God bless us, everyone. Most of all, those of us who use Apple.

    And the most important thing - any issues with 10.4.3? Also what about the Quartz 2D Extreme - is that on yet?

    Easy. Got some coffee during the download and then it was a restart.



    MOST IMPORTANT: Repair Permissions after the restart - there was a lot more than I have ever had before.

    great update, BUT:



    the update....



    Disables Quartz 2D Extreme?Quartz 2D Extreme is not a supported feature in Tiger, and re-enabling it may lead to video redraw issues or kernel panics.

    Does this fix the annoying bug which changes the selected application after being in sleep mode?

    Geeeeeeeez, after install, it took a good 12 - 15 minutes before my HDD would stop crunching away at full tilt. Is that spotlight at work? Must be journaling my drive or something. All reading, very little writing.



    Other then that, I don't see any significant improvments.



    As an owner of a Dual 2ghz G5, i hope this is not the last update I will ever see. With the switch to Intel, I guess they will drop support like a crank ho in Jersey.

    Here is hoping for 10.4
