    my friend installed panther on his 600 snow iMac, and didn't have any trouble with it.

    What's up with this? For months now, all we've been hearing from developers is how much faster Panther runs on older Macs. People with G3 iMacs and iBooks were raving about how much faster the UI was. I don't know what to think now. I guess Friday will reveal all....

    Something must be messed up with their systems. I installed it today on a 450mhz G3 iMac (320 megs of RAM), and the difference in UI speed is unbelievable. It's way faster compared to Jaguar than Jaguar was compared to Puma.
