would all that overhead in the kernal be the same that let's OSX run all sorts of business and creative apps that linux people would droll over?

Sorry. just trying to keep things in perspective here. I just am remembering linus's crying about how apple "monolithic (or was it the other type of kernal) was "crap". Ummm linus, linux is good for a server and that's about it unless you are a übergeek that just likes to fiddle. What good is a leaner kernal to normal users if it doesn't run the apps they want or need?

Bck on topic. I've used FV on my dual 2gig g5. I would agreee with the author. if you do "business" type work. then use it. If you do "creative" type work you may not want to.

i've heard of improvments in 10.3.1 and 10.3.2 and i only have experience with 10.3
