after installing SPSS 10 for Mac yesterday I tried to start it on my
Powerbook G3 Lombard (400 MHz). I had several really severe system
crashes until I could disable ActionFiles on my Mac. Since these
problems nothing unusual happened. It seems to be faster than SPSS
6.1 for Mac although I haven't tested this comparison extensively.
But it is considerably slower than SPSS 10 on my Pentium II (450 MHZ).
