First, I am sure the name Jaguar is supposed to elicit a feeling of speed and power. It sounds cool, but when I hear Jaguar, I think of the often maligned British Automaker with a widespread reputation of being unreliable and costly to own. Note: I find Mac OSX to be reliable. in fact, I find it to be VERY reliable in day to day work, with uptimes typically 10 times longer than what I experience in any version of classic MacOS. But the costly-to-own part is spot on, and SPEED is a major issue.
Why is that when I drag a window around the screen that my CPU utilization routinely spikes to 70% or more? Why is Jaguar slated to have many very cool looking new features in lieu of performance optimizations? I mean, iChat looks cool, but I have real work to do.
