    Snow Leopard boots slower on my Mac Pro 2008.

    10.5 took under 20s from bong to Finder but with 10.6 it's always around 25+ regardless if i boot 32- or 64-bit kernel.

    What are other peep's experiences?

    It felt the same for the limited time I had it. I didn't notice any lag, although nothing worked after the boot. LOL. :D

    It seems to be roughly the same time for me. I did an upgrade by the way. Overall the box feels more snappy, although it did have problems this morning as keep getting the beach ball, so did a reboot and it's fine. Maybe I have a memory leak somewhere.

    If I boot into single user mode and run an fsck, and then reboot that is definitely slower.

    I forgot to say - oddly enough, 10.6 boots slower when installed over a RAID 0 array than on a single disk (25s+ vs about 20s).

    Perhaps SL has slower disk performance somehow? I've seen posts over at Apple Discussions where users describe slower read and write performance.

    Seems to be about the same for me. Clean install by the way. Overall it feels about the same as 10.5.
