After changing the 3D dock to 2D my sluggish animations started to improve (better, but not perfect Genie effect, perfect expose, still slow grid application, perfect widgets opening animation).

I do have a problem with the finder and opening folders in general, it's simply not as fast as it used to be - it takes a few seconds to open. Anyone else experiencing this or have any solutions?

I have the same problem after Leopard update 10.5.2. The finder has gone bloody slow. When using columns, for example, clicking on a folder takes up to 2 seconds to show its contents. It gets very annoying when you have dig deep thru into folder. Also I have seen that once a particular folder has opened, it then opens fast later on until either the finder is relaunched or computer restarted. Then its the same problem. I started using PathFinder and I dont see this problem there at all.
Why has finder gotten so slow? I know it wasnt like that before, like during 10.5.1 days!
