I recently bought a Dual 2ghz G5 machine for $65 on ebay. It has osx 10.3.9 on it. Is there any advantage in terms of speed of dual core utilization to upgrading to 10.4 or 10.5?

Theoretically, Grand Central Dispatch, to improve multi-core, didn't come to OS X until 10.6, so apparently not. Also, I found 10.5 to be slower and clumsy on my PPC machines, with no noticeable improvements. But I only had G4s and no G5s, so I cannot say for sure.
