    Integer and Floating point are better while Memory and Stream are slower. The end result is an ever so slightly better performing system. I'm too cheap to pay for the 64-bit version of the app.

    It's smoother than before but it now starts up 2 seconds startup and slower GeekBench speeds. Hmmm.

    That's not too bad considering all of the fixes. It could be worse. Just think if we all still had to contend with dial up. Heh heh heh!!

    i am NOT happy with this update so far. First off... after the 2nd restart it had a kernel panic (2.33 mbp). Second off the menu lost it's Anti-alias text somewhere. The menus are less transluscent (something I liked), It doesn't feel as snappy as 10.5.1.



    Can someone tell me where you toggle the menubar being transluscent vs solid?

    I had some problems restarting after it downloaded but once I got by that it installed and rebooted okay.

    Hooray!!! Stacks has been fixed! Yes I said "fixed", because before it was seriously crippled. Thank you Apple for listening and not waiting for 10.6 to fix this!

    There is now an option in System Preferences => Desktop for turning Menu bar translucency on and off, but that won't affect the drop-down and contextual menus. They do seem less "translucency" than before. No way to change that until a hack comes around.



    My Menu Bar text looks the same. It does seem less snappier than 10.5.1 and programs are taking much longer to open. I've open up everything in my Applications folder and I'm now going to restart. Perhaps it will feel the same after that.
