They have been known to patch widespread issues, but generally most issues aren't that massive.

Also note that many issues we read about are often conflicts with haxies, skinning apps, etc...


Thanks for the clarification.

A slow startup immediately following an update is normal. After that, subsequent restarts should go back to normal. If the delay doesn't get better, you should go into System Preferences> Accounts > Login Items tab and try removing the items on the list one at a time. You might be able to find the culprit there. You should also try repairing your permissions in Disk Utility.

There are even instances where an update causes a double restart!

Yeah. Sure.

1: Photoshop CS2 works fine and dandy on my machine. Office too FYI.
2: Where is this mythical "latest version" you speak of?

They're talking about Adobe CS not CS2.

Anyone having problems connecting their iPod and auto-launching iTunes? It seems to crash 3/5 times since .4.8. I have to kill the process in Activity Monitor.

The Nano's firmware is current etc. any ideas?

Really? Who is they? I've just spent 10 min searching Google and Apple to find out and couldn't find anything catastrophic. If you could point me in the right direction...

There were a spate of post on Friday night last week when 10.4.8 released and a number of people had issues with the CS products, it seems to have died off pretty quick so it was either a rumor that got it's legs fast and lost them just as fast or it hit a very small number of people. But I do recall reading this several times last weekend.

Fair enough.

Another CoreDuo mini here, and everything appears in good working order. I only use one MS app (Messenger, and at that, only when absolutely necessary, as I prefer Fire or Adium for their snappiness) and it appears to run fine. System was slower after the update, but I hadn't run my Onyx maintenance scripts in a couple of months, and I shut down once every couple of days.

After the scripts, we're back to like-new performance. Maybe even snappier app loads than before (only Universal apps though, Rosetta still takes a good 5 seconds to awaken a PPC app). Didn't repair permissions until afterwards either.

Do these "lots of people" on Intel Macs know the importance of letting Software Update do it's business without other apps running? I'll bet thats part of their problem. These are not Wintels. Wink

They crash whether or not you run other apps during update. Laughing
