    There's a new entry in the Mac Guides addressing OSX speed issues. The article goes through all the familiar suggestions like installing more RAM, performing maintenance, not filling up the hard drive, etc. This is great and all, but wouldn't it be good to have articles addressing the many reasons OSX can slow down? For instance, I'm STILL trying to troubleshoot why both my iBook and G5 have slowed down after 10.4.3, which I consider my worst upgrade ever.

    Any thoughts?

    Yo~ the mac guides are a part of this site. Check "Guides" up at the top right part of the web page. Next to "shop" and "forums"

    i found that wiping the hd and installing 10.4 from scratch is the best way to reclaim speed....

    By the way, is anyone NOT having issues with 10.4.3? I need to do more of a forum search and elsewhere online to see what people are saying. But i'm bummed at how both systems at home, the iBook and G5 are getting taxed by something and any obvious diagnosis isn't turning up what the problem is.

    Most people only post thing when they have problems. I updated a couple of computers at home and none of them have had any problems. I updated 40 PowerMacs and work and none of them have had any problems. I think the majority of people have not have any problems.

    Can you be more specific.

    The only slowness I experienced after 10.4.3 was at startup. It takes longer than before at the spinning gear.

    But everything else is humming along nicely. If you provide details, we might be able to help.
