Default Re: 8400M GS : Low performences

I don't know that I've ever seen energyman76b post anything that wasn't confrontational but, I'll feed the troll a bit...

Compiz absolutely makes my machine more responsive. As an example, with metacity, even moving windows causes massive tearing on the moving window. The eye candy of compiz can make some things seem less responsive because they use animations that purposely make windows open/close/minimize/maximize slower than metacity but, you can turn all that off if you don't like it. Also, plugins like scale, expo, and oddly enough, water, can radically change the way you use your machine.

My xorg.conf is clean and optimized. I've had machines using compiz with uptimes of months that I use daily. The problems that people generally report on this board are not related to compiz but instead to the nvidia driver. The fact that compiz runs fine (and often much better) on intel hardware is fairly indicative of the fact that we are talking about driver issues and not compiz.
