    Just wrote in another thread that 8.12 is "still slow as molasses with any compositing manager". Really slow. To me that's "doesn't work".

    for me it is not 'slow as molasses' - the only think that is slow is manually resizing of windows - which is something I don't do much anyway. Everything is fast or fast enough.

    It's as fast as XAA allows it to be I guess... Radeon+XAA isn't better for me, however Radeon+EXA (upstream code) is epic win!

    Have a nice 24th of december.

    I've never used a graphics card that could resize windows at a decent framerate with compositing enabled. On my GeForce 6800GS and my Radeon HD 4850 it looks like about 3fps, on my GeForce 8600M it might be 5fps.

    The 9.1 beta seems good to me...

    Compiz-fusion works great on my x700 Mobility resizing windows and watching videos seems to work like a charm. Firefox scrolling is still slow but that is to be expected.

    Running FC10 here

    Say what? It might be expected if you were using a 486, but otherwise nope. I expect all applications to scroll smoothly and quickly under all circumstances, otherwise they are not fit for purpose.

    then complain to firefox and gtk. Firefox (and gtk) is simply slow. Everywhere.

    After some updates, ie: when Ubuntu release a kernel patch, or something, my copy of firefox will be VERY slow with scrolling, but to fix this I simply reinstall fglrx. Works everytime for me.

    It isn't here. It's only slow when I enable compositing. With non-compositing, it very fast.

    another joke release? If this is indeed an alpha then ATI must be playing catchup behind the scenes
