It seems to me that it generally takes 5-6 weeks for an update like this, if everything is right. This is probably just the first of many builds for this number.Originally posted by Falleron
What sort of time scale for a public releases do we think? A week, 2 weeks?

I wish they would include the ability to use M$ messenger within iChat. That wold be really good.
Here's the problem that I've had with iChat:Originally posted by mozez
...as for ichat, i have no issues with it, but i'm curious what happens for other people.
I'm with you. It doesn't matter whether it's the G3/400 or the dual 800 I run, but there are many places where speed could be improved. Of course, I feel a lot of the problem is with the application vendors and their Carbon-ized code. If they're using tricks from the old days, they're probably having a negative effect on performance. They'll figure it out and so will Apple, but Mac OS 9 didn't arrive in 1984, so it may take a little time for Apple to get to that level, but hopefully not 16-17 years.Originally posted by finchna
While all the app updating is great, I'd also like to see some speed improvement--responsiveness of the finder, running multiple apps and switching among them instantly when click on window or dock, printing w/o getting a beachball (even if they are more attractive beachballs--I mean on a LAN printing to an HP8100 there should be no hesitation), etc. Granted, I don't have a dual gig, but I do use a dual 500 and it's happening on that. And 10.2.1 on an ibook 600 really makes serious work painful--again, running multiple apps (6-8+), taking 10 seconds to process a print job (and quit counting pages) or 20 seconds to open a 1.5MB PPT deck. Really want speed--optimize the code or do whatever makes that happen! (besides buying a dual 1G+)
i understand your concern, but it's the job of the software maker to conform to the os, not the other way around, you cannot expect apple to modify their code so that it works with every poorly written program for the mac.Originally posted by MacSlut
I wish Apple would've spent or will spend more resources making sure everything works and works well...fast and reliable.

I hope they fix the nasty Finder bug, that sometimes (rare, but it happens) occurs, and makes it impossible to move or copy files (no error message or anything, you simply cannot move any files or folders). Only a reboot solves the problem. Really annoying....
