    Default Smooth Scrolling Targeted For X.Org Server 1.12

    Phoronix: Smooth Scrolling Targeted For X.Org Server 1.12

    In early 2012 we can expect to see the release of X.Org Server 1.12 with various touch improvements and other input related work. Also being queued up for the 1.12 release is support for smooth scrolling...

    I personally think that is very LATE to add smooth scrolling...

    Smooth scrolling is implemented by Gtk and Qt. I thought that this is the right place to implement this feature, given that X11 lacks GUI controls.

    Assuming the patches are related to this year old thread " http://www.mail-archive.com/xorg-devel@lists.x.org/msg06390.htm" it has more to do with input event resolution than GUI controls.

    Awesome, and about time indeed. Lack of it is basically the thing that I dislike the most on my Linux installation so far (followed by very slow Flash performance), so fixing it will go a long way indeed.

    It's always great to have new features, but I thought that everybody and their grandma immediately disabled this useless and annoying "feature" within 15 seconds of starting to use a new computer.

    I refused to use IE long before the browser wars got started precisely for enforcing this dumbass behaviour.
