It's maddening to have to wait at all. In Panther, you could hit Command R and start answering the e-mail. In Tiger you have to wait. Otherwise, you get an error alert sound and the first word that was typed wasn't there. <br><br>Between the Dashboard clutter, the Spotlight CPU hog and the sluggish Mail app, I may just be headed back to Panther. <br><br>
All reason why I only installed it on an external drive. I can boot to it and use it if I want, but there needs to be some serious updates and improvements before I'll bother putting it on my internal drive.<br><br>
You type immediately after hitting Command R?? Dang...that's pretty fast. I guess things are a bit slower here in KY because waiting a whole second isn't really that much of a drag for me. Plus, by the time I bring my left hand from the Command R key combo to the asdf position, a new email is opened up.<br><br>Dashboard clutter? It's not clutter if you don't use it. <br><br><br>Spotlight a CPU hog? I looked at my Activity Monitor and I can't find Spotlight listed there <br><br>Here's a screenshot of A.M. with a Spotlight result window next to it. Highest CPU useage is iTunes at 13%. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by OSXaddict on 05/12/05 05:31 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> You type immediately after hitting Command R??<p><hr></blockquote><p>Absolutely...100wpm and write probably 50-75 e-mails a day. I was just reading that the 10.4.1 update has some Mail improvements. I may wait for that. <br><br>
Yeah..I mean, it's not an 'end of the world' thing. Just annoying.<br><br>I like the new Mail with the smart mailboxes, and the mail in the column on the left side and some of the other enhancements, but I wish they had left the interface the same. I think that's the slowdown..it has to wait for the interface to load. <br><br>
