Years of being more secure than PCs and Apple let us celebrate the Mac's 20th Birthday with a security update?!

...how ironic.

Installed it and so far so good. Of course all i've done so far is open up Safari and come here and open up Mail.

On a side note it seems the Magnifying glass color picker seems to be working for me now. As far as I can recall since 10.3 it hasn't worked at all for me and would only return white no matter what it was over, but now its picking up colors correctly.

Did anyone else have the same problem and was it intermittent or was I just unlucky everytime i tried to use the color picker before?

Probably not, since this is a *Security* Update... and since the Start up problem isn't a security issue.. you'll have to wait until 10.3.3

Installed, and everything is fine so far. I wonder if this fixes the startup problem from the 10.3.2 update?

Don't put your money on it. Looks like Apple just calls it a "Security Update" while it's an update in general. Reading the first post carefully you'll see:
Additionally, Security Update 2003-12-19 has been incorporated into this security update. Those components are: AFP Server, ASN.1 Decoding for PKI, cd9660.util, Directory Services, fetchmail, fs_usage, rsync, System Initialization
I would say the System Initialization update is to fix the startup problem (though I'm not 100% sure since I didn't have it).

And for those who complain about the size - probably the biggest portion of it is the new Safari v1.1.1, which seems to have made some great improvement, according to Hyatt's Surfin' Safari blog.

it's not showing up for me in 10.3.1

is it 10.3.2 specific?
i am not running 10.3.2 on my G4 because i tried it 4 or 5 times and every time it crapped out on me.... i even went as far as installing a totally clean 10.3.0 on a brand new hard drive and updating to 10.3.2 and it just goes bonkers..... after a few hours to a day.

anyway that's another issue, but i guess as a 10.3.1 person i don't need the security update? maybe it will fix my other issues, but i should wait till i have time to reinstall 10.3.0 and then update to 10.3.1 before is crew around. argh
