Seriously?! Ubuntu doesn't put compiz on hold when you're playing a 3d game? That is horrible. When I'm playing a game, I expect all my gpu power to be used for it.
What, do I have to prepend
metacity --replace &
to every 3d game in my menu? Inelegant, poorly thought out.
My first instinct was to request tests with ubuntu running metacity to make it fair, but if that's not thought out better, they deserve to take the hit.
Arch is superior to ubuntu for 3d gaming in terms of performance. How unfortunate.
