I bought an intel iMac and have found that most of the programs that i want to run on it are still compiled for ppc, so they are quite slow.

OK, Ok, granted I’ve become a bit of a snob lately about the tools I use according to their availability, but shoot, I don’t want to compile ardour’s massive dependency tree! libsndfile – that’s as far as I go! sheesh. I’m actually considering going from jack to gtk, while this iMac is supposed to be a virgin deployment ground for the pksampler. ewwww
