    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.

                    Well in that vid, he doesnt mention his system specs and whether mx and ubuntu are using the same machine or one/both are in VM. Just tried his test on my machine
                    i7-7700k with nvidia on debian bullseye and i get 29% tops in gnome - xfce got 60% tops.
