fine. I never felt like it was laggy or anything. In fact, when I got
OSX (aka OPENSTEP 5) running on a beige G3 tower for the first time, I
couldn’t understand why it was so absolutely unusable, since the
performance of OPENSTEP 4 on my NeXT was very snappy.

My impression is the same - the UI on my Cube, slabs, is quite zippy. I 
think that hardware blitter helps...
