    Some process named TruBlueEnvironment is using a consistent 50-60% of my CPU.

    What the hell?

    I think that is the Classic environment running. Check System Preferences -> Classic and see if Classic is running... If it doesn't need to run you can shut it off (and make sure it's not started with the machine)...

    You're right. Good thinking.

    TruBlueEnvironment? What was Apple thinking?

    You see, A lot of Mac OS X comes from a project Apple had many years ago called Rhapsody. Rhapsody was one of Apple's attempts at a next-gen OS. Because it wasn't based on the classic Mac OS, it was going to need a Classic Mode just like OS X does - so Apple added it. Rhapsody's version of Classic was called BlueBox (hence TruBlueEnvironment).This has carried down through the years and is still in place in Mac OS X 10.4.
