Is LR 2 Slower Than LR 1.4 On OS X 10.4???
Aug 2, 2008

I installed LR 2 a few days ago on my Mac Pro (3 Ghz, 4 GB of RAM, OS X 10.4.11). At least as far as the user interface goes, LR 2 is slower than 1.4.1 on my machine. It now takes 1 - 3 seconds to switch between modues, whereas with 1.4.1 this was instantaneous. And I'm getting the spinning beach ball occasionally now, whereas I never got it with 1.4.1. However, a number of people I've talked to on another forum say LR 2 is faster. All of these people are running OS X 10.5 tho.

So, I have a few questions. Is anyone else seeing slower UI performance with LR2 on OS X 10.4? And, does anyone know if LR 2 would run faster on 10.5? I'm beginning to think the slowdown I'm seeing is because I'm running 10.4. I'd like to get some definite confirmation of this before I go to the trouble of upgrading my OS.
