OS X Loves Memory

Thanks to the fine people at Buffalo Technology my Powerbook is now equipped with the maximum 1.25 GB of memory. The difference is amazing, like night and day. My efforts to completely switch my everyday tasks to the Mac have been hindered by the lower screen resolution of the 12″ and the sluggish performance. The screen size has pretty much become a non-issue with some monitors I inherited and Synergy, I assumed the performance problems were due to it just having a slower processor, but all my Mac friends assured me that OS X just needed memory to breathe. They were right. I want to open every program on the system just to watch it.
