    BBEdit 10.5 is a joy. And the upgrade is only $40.

    Yes, you're right here. It's a mistyping from my side. The sentense
    should have been:

    "I found the old BBEdit 8.5 very slow on Lion, so I upgraded to ver. 9.6
    and it /is/ faster than ver. 8.5. Ver. 9.6.x also runs very fast on
    10.6.x and 10.7.x."

    Plus: "If you upgrade to 10.8.x or 10.9.x BBEdit 9.6.x or later is a
    must". This last part I haven't tried myself, but have it from my friend
    (mentioned earlier in the thread), who runs both 10.6.x, 10.7.x, 10.8.x
    and 10.9.x. - This should clear the misunderstanding.:)

    Cheers, Erik Richard

    OK, Erik, but what exactly was slow on Lion about BBEdit?

    If you open very large documents with BBEdit 8.5.x - i.e. +100Mb -
    especially with lots of HTML coding or huge databases to correct
    something, it can take long time - 2-3 mins. to find specific character
    combinations such as page and line breaks, color codes etc.. The same
    search type with BBEdit 9.6.x takes less than a minute.

    Cheers, Erik Richard

    +100MB! I can scarcely imagine a document for BBEdit this size!

    I don't believe there was any 2,000ghz or 2,500ghz or 2,700ghz CPUs.
    You may have meant the latest PowerPC G5 2.0ghz, 2.5ghz & 2.7ghz

    What is max for Xserve early 2008 Intel Zeon dual quad core?

    The nickname for the G5 2,0ghz and 2,5ghz was 'MacPro', but it isnot
    Intel CPUs...
    according to this link it is 10.7.x for XServe 2008 and 10.8.x and
    10.9.x for XServe 2009 models... XServe 2009 MUST have either 10.6.l8 or
    10.7.x installed to be able to upgrade. Seems as it isn't possible to
    make a 'clean' install of Mavericks on the 2009 models...

    no it wasn't.

    a g5 tower was called a powermac g5.

    when apple switched to intel, they renamed several models to use the
    prefix mac- rather than power-. the powermac g5 became a mac pro, the
    powerbook became a macbook pro and the ibook became a macbook.

    It is possible to do a clean install of Mavericks on any Mac which
    supports Mavericks, including a 2009 Xserve. You just need to create a
    bootable installer. Apple even has a document pointing you in the right
    direction.
