Brent Simmons thoughts on the state of MacOS X: “You know I like Mac OS X. The more I use it, the more I learn about it, the more I like it.”
Andrew Welch, Ambrosia Software’s President offers his thoughts on the MacOS X speed deficit: President’s Letter: Why is OS X slow?
I haven’t found MacOS X speed on my 466MHz PowerBook to be all that bad actually all things considered. On the other hand system-wide stability is great compared to MacOS 9. I’ve had an uptime of over a week that easily could have gone longer if I hadn’t needed do something in MacOS 9. And considering I can run classic apps, carbon/cocoa apps, and now x-windows apps all at once that’s a significant improvement.
