    I, for one, have noticed no slowness on my MDD G4 with journaling on. What kind of slowness should one expect?

    For example, on my 4200rpm notebook drive, writing to the journal takes half a second or so every time I move one of my files to another directory. Therefore, if I want to just move a photo from my desktop to my users folder, it feels like the computer has to think about it for a moment before performing the application. This doesn't seem to be noticeable at all on the fast dekstop drives.
