  1. Hey MikeR,
    I upgraded my g4 dual 450 to 10.4.7, and it is running the fastest it ever has. How do they do that? I have a dual boot into os9, and, while I habven’t measured it, it seems to run faster than that even. Of course that’s probably mostly perception.

    I upgraded my video card so I could get that cool user-switching cube. Mmmm…not sure if it was really woth it. I also added RAM, I’m at 1.25 GB. Really the only problem I have is editing video and burning DVDs. It gets kinda mad at me.

    The OS works fine, though.
