Hi All,

first of all greetings to all the mac community out there. I just moved from more than 15 years in the PC (DOS/Windows) arena to the Mac. I purchased a MacPro (new one), a 8-core machine with 2 GB of memory. I moved from a quad-core Q 6600 with 4 GB and I feel this Mac slower than the PC. Is this normal? Applications take some time to load, disk access seems slower. Is there any tweaking I should do? Is 2 GB of RAM not enough for a 8-core machine? Any tips?

Best regards,
