finally i was forced to update the OS to 9.1 so that i could load a few new apps.



everything is sh!tty now.



very slow and buggy.

    On the other hand, have you considered trying some of the newer post-9.1 updates? Remember, we're up to 9.2.2 now.

    "real-world, concrete examples of ...problems"



    well, a simple example is that when i launch ANY program it takes 4-5 times longer to open than it did beffore.



    and then another simple example is :

    once Outlook is open and i click to retrieve my messages it pauses like it's processing the comand for 15 seconds before it actually starts retrieving.



    freezes and crashes are much more common in general now.





    "have you considered trying some of the newer post-9.1 updates?" [ i.e. 9.2.2]



    yes, i've considered it but have not done it because i was running a delicate balance of audio, video, graphics and productivity apps, some of which conflict with 9.2.2. and was trying to NOT decend into upgrade conflict hell.

    How did you upgrade? Did you do a clean install? Did you rebuild the desktop? Did you zap the PRAM? How much memory/free HD space is there?

    i did not do a clean install, did not rebuild the desktop, didn't zap the PRAM.



    i was trying to preserve all my preferences but i guess that's not gonna happen.



    "memory/free HD space is there?" [2 partitions weighted 70/30%]



    i don't know exactly how much is free cause when i select my drives and hit "command+i" nothing happens.



    just like when i click on the desktop and "command+f" i get no sherlock.



    or "command+N" and i get no new folder.
