My guess is that this is only an issue with people who've used an upgrade CD, instead of a full install but: Go to the ProcessViewer, doubble-click LaunchCFMapp. Watch as all your apps run 2x faster. Especially games. I think in OSX 10.0.x this was a nessisarry app, but on my G4 it isn't even runnign anymore (since my Games started running faster). I figured (for my iBook) I might as well try quitting whatever core-app that was using all my cycles. Well to my surprise, MacOS kept running after I quit LaunchCMF. WOW! All my games are liquid smooth. I am now truly amazed! PS: If anyone knows what LaunchCFMapp is/does and/or how to prevent it from launching on start post a reply.
