I have a question for anyone who is familiar with the benefits of OS X on an older system. Basically, my setup is as follows: PowerBook G3 (Lombard) 400 MHz, 1 meg L2, 67 MHz bus, 192 megs RAM, 2x DVD, 6 gig HD (nearly 4 gigs free currently), no firewire or airport, so basically USB is the newest tech my 'book has. I have both OS 9.2.2 and OS X 10.0.6 installed with a dual partitioned drive with 3 gigs to each. So... I installed OS X when it first came out as I was eager to jump towards the future, but the performance in OS X was terrible. It literally takes forever just to load something as simple as system preferences and my computer hangs when just opening folders and such. For this reason, I basically switched back to OS 9 as my boot disk and I hardly (if ever) go into OS X besides to simply stare at it wishing it could run better. I've been holding out until I upgrade to a newer PoweBook (in particular, the 15" AlBook), but the wait is killing me simply because ALL new stuff is on OS X and I feel left behind and sorely wanting to play with OS X and join in the folding team here and all that good stuff (along with learning terminal and the fun stuff that goes with OS X). But I am left with this question--is it worth the money to get 10.2 Jaguar even though I don't have firewire or anything to take advantage of the iApps beyond playing here and there, don't have the ability to use Quartz Extreme (due to my 8 meg ATi Rage card), and Panther/15" books coming out...sometime...? I checked the specs today and on Apple's page it says 10.2 doesn't support upgrade cards or original G3 PowerBooks, along with the Rage video card not being supported. Would Jaguar be just as slow or would it actually be fast enough to do work and enjoy the user experience?
