    Phoronix: GNOME Shell + Mutter Off To A Good Start For Summer 2020

    The GNOME Shell and Mutter have seen a lot of work come together nicely over the past two months...

    More good stuff is coming soon. First they need to land this massive MR that allows different frame rates per screen.

      50% cpu usage just to move a small window around.

        Amazing. 50% CPU usage to move a window.

        They got no idea how the other good desktop did it without wasting CPU.

            I can't believe I used that version for 6 whole months and nobody fixed it. I thought my keyboard was broken.

              Kids watch, the dinosaurs are back: this is an andyprough and this is a tildearrow; they are millions of years old and use floppy disks, care about a few MB of RAM, and a few percent use of a core.

              For the topic on question, this "test" would never go beyond 20% core load on a modern CPU even with 4K display. Also, this was improved in Gnome recently (but may not be in Ubuntu, yet).

                  I was mind blown when people still voted it the best release in 10 years. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/12/...release-decade I would have taken literally any other version, I even switched to Ubuntu when 9.04 came out so not exaggerating. Initially 20.04 also had this bug with some version and it only got fixed about 2-3 months after the release.

                    It might be, but when I skimmed the video I did not see him revealing his graphics card. The number of times this is the case its astounding.

                    I wish nVidia users were as vocal as Arch users. It would leave this so much easier.
