Now that you have it installed, could I get a build number? I installed a build of 10.2.3, but it messed up compatibility with my mud client in Classic. Also, is it possible to run 10.2.3 without updating classic, or does it make you? I think it does...

Link doesn't seem to work

I don't know what the deal is, but when I just tried the link to the knowledge base document, it wasn't found.

Some wisdom: always wait about a week after the patch to update. So if there are any problems, you'll only be reading about it rather than flipping out dealing with it.

If only these things were available on CD or even on Cover CD's with Mac magazines.

Thats gonna take days to download with my 2-hours 56k connection.

Shame the update does'nt offer a solution to the MDD PowerMac's amazing noise generation problem!

Supposedly, but with my MDD it made no difference. 10.2.3 is fine.

It does feel a bit faster under 10.2.3 than it did in 10.2.2. The Video performance is smoother from what i can see.

Most importantly (to me)...

* Improves compatibility for the HP Communications application.

10.2.2 and HPCommuntications.app were water and oil. It was so bad that I had to roll-back to 10.2.1. I really hope they got everything fixed here - but I'm waiting to hear the "okay" from HP and/or other HP users.

Is it just me or do the little red, orange and green jelly buttons look recessed or embedded in some of the Apple titanium Apps??? Look at Address Book, iSync, Back-up, iChat. Not sure why this would matter or if it is just my computer. Someone chime in if you have the same.

Another one, just for me! ;-)

# Addresses a potential kernel panic situation when disconnecting a USB hub from a Power Macintosh G3 (Blue and White) computer.

I've had this happen to me several time, but not just on hub removal. I had it happen by removing a CompactFlash reader (with no CF card).

Thank you Apple!


(And people say Apple doesn't care about us "legacy" machine owners.)
