10 Things Apple Did To Make Mac OS X Faster

The performance of computer hardware typically increases monotonically with time. Even if the same could be said of software, the rate at which software performance improves is usually very slow compared to that of hardware. In fact, many might opine that there is plenty of software whose performance has deteriorated consistently with time. Moreover, it would be rather difficult to establish a single (or at least objective) performance metric for software as complex as an operating system: a “faster OS” is a rather subjective phrase.

Making An Operating System Faster provides a sampling of things that Apple did (beyond initial/fundamental OS design and implementation) to make Mac OS X “faster”.
