I am hesitant to upgrade to Logos 5 because frankly, when I upgraded to 4 over 3, I found that Logos 4 was horrendously SLOWER. Granted, I understand, bigger software = more time, however, I have a computer that is a decent Intel Dual Core, 8gb RAM, Solid State Hard Drive - it goes from cold off to ready to use in about 9 seconds. My Outlook (with its 10gb active database) opens and is fully functional in about 2 seconds.

So I am shocked at how SLOW Logos 4 is for me on the same machine. It is the only software that I have that is like this. Everything else is lightning.

Perhaps Logos 4 was not designed for multi-thread/multi-core support???

In my experience, Logos 5 is noticeably faster. I have a pretty modest machine.

You can update the engine only for free, and then decide if it is for you.

I think you will be happy with the results.

You'll find that link on the Support page.

Logos is similar to windows path:

Logos 3 = Windows Xp - fast but is already old and misses some features, and there is no support anymore

Logos 4 = Windows vista - slow but has more features and still is under support

Logos 5 = Windows 7 - much faster, has more features, more polished, and under support

hope Logos 6 will not be similar to Windows 8 Zip it!

Windows 8 is pretty fast by comparison.  I downloaded Classic Shell to make it more palatable. Smile

Logos 3, and probably Outlook, are native Windows applications, but Logos 4 and later use .NET, which runs within a virtual machine. The advantage of .NET is that the same code can run on both Mac and Windows; but the cost is that it is slower on both, because the virtual machine needs to essentially translate the app as it runs.

In contrast, I guess I have an immodest machine :>, with only 2GB of RAM.  Logos 5 seemed slower when I updated from Logos 4. I've discovered that L5 and L6 want twice the RAM of L4, which I'm presuming is the reason.

The specs (with L4 and L5 minimums from Archive.org, because I think they've been removed from Logos.com ):

So I've actually reverted to Logos 4.  Has anyone else had this experience?

Six has been faster for me, but then I've got a decently fast computer. The new x64 coding allows it to use more of my memory, which is nice. Especially when indexing.
