I was wondering how tiger compared to Panther interms of speed
On two fresh installs on the G4 and the iBook, ues, quite an improvement.
The iMac G5 with an archive and install? Meh.
On a dual G5 with a lot of RAM (2.5GB) it's noticably faster than 10.3, which is impressive, since it already ran quite well.
There have been some noticable glitches (though no panics), but hopefully those will work out in the wash or be fixed in 10.4.1.
Runs faster (slightly) on my machine. Wasn't expecting an increase.
However... was playing WoW last night and suddenly my hard drive went nuts. Tiger was doing something resource-intensive and dropped my machine to a crawl. Quit WoW, force quit both Firefox and iMail and everything returned to normal.
Not sure what happened. (No, Spotlight indexing was done hours earlier.)
Other than startup, I notice no speed difference on my ibook g3 800 GHz with 640 Ram
It may have been indexing another large file that you might have added recently, or it may have been attempting to index the game files.
Spotlight behaves oddly sometimes.
I've got a PB1,25ghz with 700something MB of ram, and no noticable difference, although i get the feeling that the CPU is pulling more weight.... some apps don't seem as snappy......
