The only bad photo is the photo not taken!

My USB 2.0 high speed devices are only a little faster than USB 1. My firewire drives and card readers are lightening fast. I can boot from the drive and honestly I can see absolutely no difference in the performance of my G4 using that drive than being booted from the internal. You can't boot from USB2.0 either.
