    I'm probably going to wait till the first point release. I tried it out with F32 and there seems to be quite a few regressions.

      There were some reports of people in nvidia and wayland with a display on scale 2 not being able to login (or log into a black screen).

          An incredible release. It's crazy how much faster my desktop/notebook have become in the past few months thanks to Gnome/Canonical/everyone's hard work.

          Same hardware, nothing has changed, just software getting better and more optimized AND I'M HERE FOR IT!

            Not surprised, GNOME 3's performance has always been garbage, it has been completely unusable in VM's or old Intel-based GFX for example.

            Hope it does improve on those case usages and I can stop avoiding it like the plague it has been so far.

                I hope they won't forget about memory consumption also. 1GB on boot just for (lets be honest) lowfunctional fullscreen grid of apps and couple of panels - is ridiculous.

                  For some time now.

                    I took a quick gif with Peek to show off the speed. This is on an Haswell 4c/4t, a 7-year old processor with an RX480, and my 2010 MacBook Pro is not thaat much slower than this and uses the nvidia 340 driver.
