hello. i wanted to create a thread that is simaler to the common ones of pc users. there are literally millions of pages, and threads, and talk about speeding up windows xp. there are useless processes that can removed and killed in task manager, you can disable services, you can speed up boot time, and you can do all that without voiding a single warrenty or spending a penny. i know that macs don't really need to deal with that "crap" but i feel that macs have a lot of potential for registry tweeking and the such. to give you an idea of what i mean by speeding up without voiding warrenty or spending a penny check out these examples for pcs. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1590 http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1681 http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1494 so. i would like some feedback and cool tweeks and tips on speeding up our macs!
