Well, in the short time (hours) that I've been using OS 9.0.4, there is one thing I've noticed: it takes up less RAM. While 9.0 was hovering around 21.5, now with 9.04 the system went down to around 17.5. This was a straight install, I disabled no extensions, RAM usage went down 4 meg... Whether this is unique to my case (PM 7200/90) or whether Apple decided to fiddle with what stuff it reports as being in the System Heap, I don't know. I've had no problems yet though...

yes, my Mac is using less RAM with OS 9.04, not as much less as you (you have VM on and I NEVER touch VM) but OS 9.04 is using 2M less RAM on average, and my browsers have been wiping clean at quit for a change, that is, now they relinquish their RAM allocations when you quit them. amazing!

With OS 9, AIM sometimes went into an indefenite spin at exit. 9.0.4 fixed that.

9.0.4 also fixed a PPP disconnect problem that i was having. All is well.

Apple has really done well this time.

Great work guys!!!

9.0.4 fixed my USB floppy boot up problems, so I'm pleased.
I have not noticed any problems with the update.
