[OS X TeX] Off topic: system stablitity

Even though I reinstalled the system with wipe disk, it is much more  
unstable than ever before since the introduction of OS X. Now I work  
with the Force Quit Application window open all the time.

Example: if I upload a file to iDisk, the Finder may become  
unresponsive for up to a minute. The Finder turns red in the Force  
Quit Application window. If I relaunch the Finder, I loose the upload,  
but nothing else is effected.

When the Finder is unresponsive, the keyboard combination invoking the  
Force Quit Application window does not work either.

There are other signs of sloppy work by Apple. In Safari, go to Help:


Viewing and customizing Top Sites

Cover Flow and Safari

Searching history

Browsing in tabs

The Top Site help has just been put in. The white star (updated sites)  
works for some sites, not for others.

Anybody has similar experiences?
