to make a long story short, thanks to Native Instrument's (Software Co.)'s totally crappy "new and improved" Panther driver, i have had to bring my 12" 867mhz G4 Powerbook back down to OS 10.2.8 (my job depends on it) outside of the Xbench score of this machine dropping 15% (mostly in the GUI department), i have noticed how very slow Jaguar 'feels' compared to Panther. Is there any way to optimize the 'snappiness' more? Since i use my laptop for live audio, even in panther i did many optimization techniques such as turning off all dock animation (even hiding), solid color desktop background, keeping the menubar to its minimal'est, no additional startup items, turning off all languages besides English in every program that will allow it, even found a way to turn off finder when working in certain software. Short of the Finder hack (cant get it to work in Jaguar), i've done all these things in Jaguar. Is there anything else (and please dont say upgrade to Panther) that i can do to optimize the snappiness of Jaguar? I realize my computer isn't exactly 'running' slower than with Panther - and that it just feels slow. I'm sure i'll get used to it soon enough, but right now it feels like Jaguar's paws are stuck in the mud.
