I built a graphics test stack as a standalone. It just has 6 copies of 
1 animated gif image "imported as control". When I run the standalone:

OS X Activity Monitor reports 30-50% of CPU and 60MB "Real Memory" 
used. Windows 2K Task Manager reports 10-18% of CPU and 8MB "Mem 

The Windows machine is an old laptop, and the Mac is a dual-G4 
workstation with  quartz extreme and 1GM of RAM. The Mac is *way* more 
powerful than the laptop!!

Is this typical of what others are seeing, or is there something I can 
do on OS X to ease up the system requirements?
