Default Re: BackingStore

BackingStore (a feature of the X server, not the driver) will make certain things faster. It will also make the server use more memory.
When you have enough memory in the system, certainly try it.

(the function is to keep a copy of content drawn on screen so that it can be copied back when it is uncovered, instead of the application drawing the same thing again and again)
