It really upsets me when people are like OS X is slow. I am using an imac at school, a 600mhz G3 with only 128 ram, using 10.2.4; 128 of ram and it is still running fine. What I cannot understand is how someone could have like a dual G4, like a dual 867, and call it slow with upwards of 512 ram. Augh. True this comp is not a speed demon, and it does not have as much ram as my comp at home (i have this comp with 384), but it still opens itunes in around 5 seconds, IE almost instantly, and word is not too shabby either. People need to grow up and realize that patience is a virtue.
