Just want to know the side-effects of (if any) the new OS X update .4 that has been released. It's ~40MB and I hear it updates a plethora of things so don't want to take a chance.

Key enhancements include:
  • improved file sharing and directory services for Mac (AFP), UNIX (NFS), PPTP, and wireless networks
  • improved OpenGL technology and updated ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers
  • improved disc burning and recording functionality
  • iPods connected via USB 2.0 are now recognized by iTunes and iSync
  • additional FireWire audio and USB device compatibility
  • updated Address Book, Mail, Safari, Stickies, and QuickTime applications
  • improved compatibility for third party applications
  • previous standalone security updates

For detailed information on this Update, please visit this website

I updated. Nothing is new. Nothing is faster (aside from the possible Snappy Placebo™). Nothing went wrong. All is going well.

There are already a couple threads about this in the OS Forum. Here's the main one.

I updated as well. The most common 10.3.4-brought-improvement that I am reading about is Safari; smoother scrolling, faster Bookmarks Menu drop down... etc. But I'm not a Safari user, so I can't say much to that end.

But I can say that my G4 hasn't exploded yet.

All went well. Comp didn't bug me about the plugged in speakers at boot and safari does seem reasonably better than before. Can't say too much more.

I've installed it on two systems and both are responding rather well.

So far, I feel the finder seems to be more responsive/durable.

Time will tell...

Oh, you must use the bottom of your TiBook as a griddle as well, eh?

10.3.4 is slightly better, but they didn't fix a handful of finder bugs and that stupid crash bug STILL exists!!!!!!
