    ugh, I love phoronix's ridiculous 5 minute edit limit, anyway this in your compton config file should give totally tear-free output on intel, using full opengl page-flipping:

    Probably just an issue with your compton settings, its been a while since I used compton, but I recall you could set it up to use opengl + full page-flipping for total tear-free on intel. I'll see if...

    There is so much ridiculous hyperbole in most of these replies.

    And phoronix's (and other website's are guilty of this too) completely sensationalist clickbait headline does not help.

    They've been promising this since like 11.10 lol. It always gets silently backed out and never heard from again until the next release comes around where they say this time it will have ant-aliased...

    Its still not multithreaded enough though, the UI chugs a lot more under load than google chrome. It still doesn't even have off-the-main-thread compositing enabled on windows and linux.

    I love...

    The Cocoa API's do actually provide a lot of hardware acceleration though, much moreso than GTK or win32. So the fact that they get a lot of hardware acceleration for free on cocoa is still true....

    He said "sometimes" undocumented, and I don't think they are explicitly depending on undocumented features. What he meant was that apple's cocoa framework already utilizes a lot of hardware...

    A lot of people like firefox do to mozilla's better respect of user-privacy, and/or because of its superior customization, but become dissatisfied with how slow firefox moves on features such as...

    There actually was a developer that responded, but I don't remember where. He basically said they don't plan to ever use aura on OSX, because cocoa already gives them a lot of hardware acceleration...

    It works fine for my needs, but I don't deal with PDF's much. I'd wager it does the job just fine for many users that only need a basic reader. Only problem I've seen is it can be sluggish with large...

    Just installed it. The new audio core is FAR better, all my issues are fixed. No more audio/video de-syncing when I pause/resume and no more audio stutter when pausing. Now pauses/unpauses very...

    I hope the re-written audio core fixed the issues I've been having with audio/video sync ever since vlc 2.0.4 (unsync's after I pause/resume a video).

    Systemd has far more features and advantages than just 'faster boot'.

    You ignored almost everything he said... HAL was considered bad because it was extremely monolithic and became difficult to maintain. Systemd, as mentioned above, is built in a very modular way and...

    Quote for truth, I agree with everything you said. I think you are one of the few sensible people left on this forum :/
