Installed 10.4 yesterday & it seems to work ok on a box with less that 
stellar speed potential, but with one caveat:

The font rendering in some programs sucks, or screen damages are not being 
redrawn, take your pick, it seems to depend on the program.

Font rendering is pretty bad in firefox, and I believe much the same problem 
exists in the card games as there is all sorts of trash left behind when you 
move a card.

A bash shell OTOH, renders perfectly and can be scrolled either direction 
without showing any screen damages there.  But gedit can become almost 

Is this a known problem?
