Can´t say that for my System, iMac C2D 2.16, 1.5GB ram. Feels obviously snappier, especially the graphics stuff like spaces is smoother. Overall, the system does seem to access the disk less. But that might just be an illusion. Weird, they did not fix the (granted, harmless) bug in Activity Monitor that tells you you have something like 44GB of virtual memory. Also strange, on a side note: Now that it´s gone, I miss the stronger transparency of dropdown menus. Seems I´m not the only one, according to a quick forum check, and that goes to show how fast looks grow on most people when they are getting used to them...

Maybe it's not the amount of actual virtual memory, but how much memory has been allocated.
