10.0.4 offers no speed improvement :(
Authored by: sjonke on Jun 21, '01 07:37:38PM

Any speed improvent you find is most likely due to the optimization process and not 10.0.4 itself. I installed it both on my 366 MHz iBook (320MB) and my AGP 450 MHz G4 (512MB). There is no difference in performance. Get your disappointment out of the way now. The updates it provides are undoubtedly a good thing, but it isn't even remotely faster. Sigh. Let's hope 10.1 comes out at Mac World and brings us much needed, and very significant, speed improvements. Mind you, I still love OS X. :) Just disappointed in this update.

I wouldn't have expected a speed improvement in a 0.1 incremental release. Those are usually reserved for bug fixes and adding small functionality tweaks (ie more iTunes burners).

Whatever they have cooking for speed tweaks are probably all going into the (rumored) 10.1 Macworld build. That's where they'll get the greatest "oooh!" and positive press for any improvements that they may have been able to make.

No visible changes noted. But I'd still be happy if my iSub worked and if I could hear the modem when it dialed out. Guess basic stuff like that isn't important.
