Wondering what people use to speed up their PPCs. Years ago I used OnyX and Yasu, knowledge of these tools might help people get better performance out of TFF, stick with it, etc.

    Using optimizer tools on a regular basis is, in my view, largely useless because Mac OS X can for the most part take care of itself.

    I've used Onyx in earlier versions of the OS, but the tool is problematic because it uses it's own dialog to ask for the admin password (instead of the official dialog the OS provides). To me, this is a security concern.

    In addition to System Preferences, however, I do use Tinker Tool for hidden preferences, and Tinker Tool System for troubleshooting & some rare, special operations that other people would use the terminal for. These tools are powerful, safe and well-maintained because the guy who makes them is one of the maybe handful of people who really know everything about Mac OS X. But these tools don't really make PPC Macs faster.
