I have to agree with Ed. Graphics are so slow as to make their use currently unappealing, to say the least. Below, on my PowerBook G4 (384 mb RAM, OS X 10.2.4), you can see that qladder takes 100 times as long under version 8 compared to version 7 control (76 seconds versus 0.73 seconds). I hope the promised speed boost shows up soon; I donated my version 7 manuals to the library.
