    Looks like some good changes, might be worth to install again. There seems to be some large bugs with Arch though so I'll hold off for a week

      Has somebody tried Cinnamon on low power devices like RasPi 2 or Cubieboard A20? I'm curious because LXDE feels laggy and maybe the OpenGL ES backend from Clutter could help. AFAIK doesn't LXDE profit from GPU acceleration.

        Is the app launcher menu responsive?

        I haven't tried Cinnamon in forever, but last time I did it was too unresponsive. Had too much delay when I wanted to open the app launcher menu.
