54.4 MB for me.

Delta upgrade from 10.4.3. to .4. on my PowerBook 12". This'll be my guinea pig machine until I know it's safe to go on my production G5. Spotlight fixes sound good to me.

Here's to the Crazy Ones

Posting this from 10.4.4 right now on my iBook. So far, so good, as with every other OS update I've done.

Oh, and my computer feels like a quad 8.9Ghz core duo x99 now. It's so snappy.

My rev. B 2GHz PM is fine here - bit of a long time with the grey screen - but the 10.4.3 update was the same, so I just sat and waited till it did its thing.

erm - the Dashboard is a great deal quicker - possbily from new Drivers for graphics. Well otherewise - pretty much the same as 10.4.0 is you ask me.

The update made a minor cosmetic change to the Spotlight icon background.

i didn't notice the new address book widget... imho it looks a lot better, no more odd shapes, fits more nicely with the os.

Hopefully the USB compatibility fixes my issues with my PS2 to USB radio shack adapter and my PNY Vibe on my G5.

Installed it and everything seems fine... it does feel a bit snappier, especially dashboard (well for me anyways).

Dashboard was cool for 5 minutes after I loaded Tiger. Then I realized how much CPU those little buggers use...

Needless to say, I will not be loading these new widgets on.

works great on my ibook 12" 1.33 GHz. Installed smoothly, rebooted, repaired permissions, and everything seems to be working great.

Installed on my ibook, works great. I also noticed that the finder version now matches the OS version 10.4.4.
