Well, while this is true ethana, don't forget about this thing called "demanding games". It's something we haven't seen for a good while, and will probably be seeing a lot in the future, and there's a lot of pressure on Canonical so these games run well. It doesn't matter what computer you have, Compiz/KWin/insert 3D environment or WM here: IS a performance hit.
