A simple but effective Mac speed-up tip
Authored by: RandyMan on Dec 06, '05 11:50:32AM

It doesn't matter what type of items are on the Desktop; whatever they are, they are represented by a window backing store, which is the issue.

Replacing everything with aliases would gain you nothing.

A simple but effective Mac speed-up tip

While my desktop is already uncluttered I noticed with Quartz Debug that one of the aliases was constantly refreshing (also the time with seconds indicator and flashing ":" in the menuu bar). So I removed the alias and placed the original document instead and the refresh stopped. I also removed the seconds and flashing ":" from the menu bar.

I'm no expert, but it is my guess that some aliases would make a difference, especially if you have many of them.
