    Use at your own risk.

    sudo update_prebinding -root /

    sudo renice -15 -p `ps -ax | grep WindowServer | cut -c1-5 | sort | head -1`

    sudo renice -15 -p `ps -ax | grep Finder | cut -c1-5 | sort | head -1`

    sudo renice -15 -p `ps -ax | grep Dock | cut -c1-5 | sort | head -1`

    The first does some sort of modifications on the files. The other three are offshots of the older one I posted.

    while those commands may speed up your foreground app.. it seriously puts a hurting on your multitasking capabilities... which is bad if you plan on doing more than one thing at a time
