    Does anyone else find 10.4.7 really really buggy or is it just me? iPhoto is sluggish, I put a meeting into ical and the next time I opened it up it was gone. My airport signal strength on the menu bar disapeared the first time i rebooted and my BT mouse (the thing the upgrade was supposed to fix) is even buggier than it was before not to mention a bunch of other things I cant remember right now. I really wish I can revert back to .6 as I see no benefit or addition that was added to .7

    Running 10.4.7 sweetly on G4 Powerbook and G5 iMac, no issues for me, although I'm not using a BT mouse. iPhoto running OK with ~4000 photos.

    No problems here either with iPhoto or any other apps on a iMacG5. No issues with Airport. My Radtech bluetooth mouse was performing perfectly. Never had any problems with it before 10.4.7 either. Just got a BT Mighty Mouse and i love it.

    My iBook always seems to have a better Airport signal strength and can see more wireless networks than my Alu Powerbook. I guess that is just because of the aluminum casing.?

    yeah, how is that BT might mouse? The original was terrible, it squeeked when I clicked it and the right button barely worked. Any of those problems on yours?

    I have been getting a lot more beach ball moments than with 10.4.6.

    I havnt had any trouble at all!
    matter of fact, i think my computer is fast with tiger!

    i never messed with anything other than 10.4.7 because by the time i upgraded to tiger 10.4.7 was already out!

    but 10.4.7 runs awesome!

    It works perfectly, no squeaks and the buttons only need a light touch. Love the scroll ball. From what I've read, I'd better remember to keep my hands clean though.

    I originally had an ordinary Apple BT mouse which I found to be very heavy feeling. I was pleasantly surprised by the lightness of the BT MM and it tracks perfectly on my gloss painted desk. I mainly work with CAD and 3D rendering software and I'm delighted with it.

    10.4.7 improved the performance of my MBP actually. Maybe something went wrong with the update on yours...

    I've had no issues with my MBP. :) Especially with 10.4.7.

    My PPC eMac seems to be quite pleased with 10.4.7, and since I leave it on 24/7 and use it everyday, it's had more than enough time to come up with something to complain about.
