I just got a new iMac G5. New to me at least. Which version is best?

1.8 Mhz G5, 2 gigs RAM

Thanks,
Rick

No competition: the UB version is far more stable and faster.

The CFM version is only really needed if you rely on any old plug-ins that haven't been recompiled for the UB release. (I keep it around for just that purpose).

Basically, they're free to download (if you're a registered user) so you could try them both and see how you get on. Personally, the UB is my number one choice, but I'm on an 8-core MacIntel!

If you're going to be doing any UV unwrapping it's good to have the CFM version installed so you can use the PLG UV Tools (plugins) also, just fyi. :)
