    So does this mean that the os will not run on something with a rage 128 installed? ( such as the curent ibook?) This would kind of suck! But if it means great improvement I guess it must be done.

    I believe they only meant that the new version of quartz won't work with the video card, meaning it will have to be handled exactly as it is today. The OS itself should run just fine on all machines that currently support OS X.

    I'm going to have to reconsider keeping my rev a TiBook now. 8MB of VRAM on a Rage 128 Mobility card just seems sad now...:(

    I hear you exactly. I'm starting to think that perhaps i sould off-load my tibook pretty soon, before having to admit that it can't take advantage of the latest OS :(

    Still, virtually everyone's been sreaming for speed increases, and if this delivers, then so be it.

    Ha ha haaa!
    And once again, us early adopters are left out in the cold. Thanks, Apple.

    I just bought a Radeon 7000 PCI graphics card for my G4 400 PCI, but aparently that's not good enough!

    Same boat here. We are all on the S.S. Take it up the rear. I just bought two iBooks over the last three months and an iMac SE in December. Oh, well, thank God for ebay right.

    Steve Jobs said today.."We know you were wanting finder improvements, and for quartz to go throught the graphics system, so now it will. All you have to do is either have an AGP based G4 Tower, the new iMac, or the TiBooks that were release last week. Everyone else......"
