OS X, according to many, gets faster on the same hardware over time, as
opposed to slower.  I know that 10.4.2 is pretty snappy on my G4
Powerbook, and it absolutely flies on a G5.  I'm looking forward towarsd
the Intel chips, honestly.

Speaking of which, I am now a Mac convert, as of two months ago --
replaced my home Linux workstation with a PB G4, and now have a nearly
idle AthlonXP box running Debian Stable. *grin*
