    Throwing mud in peoples faces isn't really the best way to get them working for you.

    Giving them positive reactions works much better.

      I agree with that.

      If some people will try the current fedora rawhide test release they will probably be surprised how much of this is true.

            And I just tested it and I am really impressed! Performance problem with vegastrike-svn and Ataraxia Fighterbase: gone!
            With AR-17 jump point and asteroid field - a lot less severe (and partially gone - if the jump point is not visible, fps are back to normal. KDE 4.2.69+effects:
            tvtime CPU load for X is down a bit.
            changing windows size without showing content: lag free
            changing windows size while showing content: still slow, but a bit better.

            Very, very impressed.

                why are you people so obsessed with 2.6.29?

                  I'm not! for me the kernel 2.6.29 is pointless...

                  Xserver1,61 + 29 kernel = lag mega bad bad lag!

                  2.6.30 is a good kernel...

                  for me 2.6.28 is a good kernel :-)
