I use Mathematica on Windows, but I sometimes watch others using
Mathematica on Macs sharing a network with Windows. Mac users describe
the kernel as "alseep" and "hard to wake up".

My limited experience is that the delay affects Mathematica 3.0 and 4.0
to about the same extent. There is considerable variation in the length
of delay, but this length seems to depend upon the current state of the
network, more so than on the version of Mathematica that is running.

So, from my experience, the problem should not deter you from upgrading
from 3.0 to 4.0.
