    Next Fedora and Ubuntu are going to be awesome.

      GNOME Shell is much faster and the animations are much smoother than before.
      Unfortunately, the duration of the animation is still too long.
      Also the animation is a rather ugly folding animation instead of a modern sliding animation.

        phoronix Could you do a performance comparison between various graphics cards / CPUs on the performance of Gnome Shell 3.32 once ready? I guess there is some benchmarking possibilities (maybe measuring frames per second), while running various tasks in shell (e.g. opening the menu et cetera). Would be awesome if you could also include the POWER9 powered Talos II... Thank you in advance!

        P.S.: It would also be very interesting to compare performance between different DEs (e.g. Gnome Shell vs KDE Plasma).

          Yeah. A lot of UIs get that wrong. Even though the app is fast & responsive, it feels sluggish because the animations are slow.

          Even though hollywood movies are notoriously bad at representing computer usage accurately, one thing they do well with, is nice interfaces! The UIs in movies are often dark, highly fast & responsive, clean and evidently have hotkeys to perform almost every action (the actors seem to be able to navigate the UIs at lightning speed; implying a sophisticated, vim-like hotkey/command system must be present).

            you are right about that, you can fix it with this: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/277/impatience/
            i personally use 0,66

              Fullscreen unredirect has been broken in 3.30.2. It will be fixed in the upcoming release: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/799 This means that Freesync and G-sync will work again (Ubuntu have applied patches for it, but not e.g. Fedora).

                That's going to be a great release! Many optimizations and fixes all over the place. The only things I'm missing are some of vanvugts performance optimizations (for mouse movement and frame skipping) and per monitor refresh rates on wayland.

                  Those commits from van vugt take so damn long to get reviewed and merged..
                  I was also hoping those would make it..
                  I guess we'll have to wait another year then...

                    I think that's down to his patches being built without much peer review and that they change some quite fundamental things and need to be checked for regressions.
