    Wow, this is weird. I have an iMac 333MHz with Jaguar (WWDC Preview) installed. And, I have my G4 400MHz with OS X installed (not jag).

    To complete a WU on my G4, it takes about...5-7 days. On my imac, it takes 17 hours!!!

    I know some WU are bigger than others, but this imac does 1 percent every 10 minutes!!!

    W00t! That's just awesome :D

    Maybe Jaguar provides better mathlib's or something. I read somewhere that IE draw pages so insanely slow because the lack of mathlib in the system.. (?) I think it was about that i read. Maybe I misunderstood.. or.. maybe I just don't remember what it was. I know it had something to do with OS X's core and calculations...
