I’m typically not an early adopter when it comes to an OS … Having survived the Windows 98 implementation, I learned to take it slow when I new one comes out. I finally broke down and upgraded to OS X Leoopard a couple of weeks ago … Mostly because it would work betterer with my iPhone 3G and under the delusion that I would actually be learning enough Objective C to be able to write some little iPhone apps that I thought would be fun.
Note to self: Any sentence with the words Objective C and fun in it is an oxymoron. C’s still a drag.
Anyway, the first thing I noticed after upgrading my iMac was that it started crashing, almost immediately. It was also running as slow as the old grey mare (you know, the one they shot because she was too old for the glue factory?) Someone suggested I up the memory to a full 4 Gb … and it worked.
The machine’s running well again, and doesn’t take forever to boot.
