Periodic maintenance makes sense. I still don’t get why Mac doesn’t schedule the maintenance or even tell you that it might be needed. Especially considering the Ads tout “just works” perpetually.

The fact that you have not done any maintenance
on a five year old machine is a testament to the op/sys.

Most windows users have thrown away
more than two machines in five years
or a geek loaded it with Linux.

If you want make the G5 new again
disk utility=> repair permissions.
This is no cost as disk utility is part of the op/sys.

Disk Warrior will cost money but is the best.

Re-building the disk iNodes is best done standalone via DVD.

I have a Mac Pro w/ Aperture and LightZone
and Photomatix for photography.

It has been just upgraded to Snow Leopard.

In addition I have a five year old 17" PowerBook
running Leopard for presentations.
This is being typed on a 17" iMac with Leopard.

The wife loves her 20" Intel iMac.

The only working windows in the house
is a Acer One XP 10" netbook
cost $299 plus $75 for a new battery
