On my iBook, Appleworks loads the fastest. On my Cube, however, Appleworks takes a while to fully organize itself. On top of that, on my Cube, Appleworks "stutters" about every minute or so of use. Specific problems: Appleworks loads up to the Starting Points menu, then the processor remains busy for about 10 to 15 seconds before Starting Points is fully loaded. When I choose a new document, it takes a while to load. Also, about every minute or so, when I type, select colors, move objects, scale, etc., I have to wait about 2 seconds for my computer to respond, and it goes on for about 10 to 15 seconds. Appleworks 6.2.2 did not do this to me. I do not have a CD copy of Appleworks 6.2.4, and I am not asking for a copy of Appleworks. I would like to know why Appleworks is lagging on my computer.
