runs fast as hell on my 1.5 solo

faster than my Athlon XP 2600 to be totally honest...

Photoshop CS2 under XP starts up in about 5-6 seconds on here, vs. 30-45 under OSX (i realize that's mostly due to it not being a universal binary, but it loads even faster than PS CS2 did on my 1.42 PPC mini)

Firefox launches in 7secs on XP as opposed to 15+ secs on MacOS X

Are you using the Universal Binary for OS X, 1.5.0.2? It's much faster than 1.5.0.1 which isnt a UB.

Thanks Paul.

I just used the .dmg from getfirefox.com

I just installed the UB 1.5.0.2 version and it is much quicker.

But XP seems to load a few secs faster. Its very very close though And I tried it from from first launch and launching when its cached.

1st Launch
XP - 7-8 secs
MacOS X 9-10 secs

2nd Launch (cached)
XP 1-2 secs
MacOS X 2-3 secs

My rig is a single core with 2 gigs of RAM.
