Now if you want to say their intention was make it touch optimized you'd haves a stronger case.
    The sad thing is that GS isn't optimized for either paradigm... it's just a bit of a mess, but it wouldn't take a huge effort to salvage it.
    That's actually what I meant. The intention is that. Since they don't fit me, I don't use them. I only tried them a long time ago.

    On my system, openSUSE 12.3, oxygen-gtk is the default for gtk themes, but the default Qt render mode is raster.

    How is that even possible? XRender doesn't support vsync, so you should be getting a crapload of tearing.

    The default is for GTK apps to use the Oxygen theme, because it blends in with the KDE theme as closely as possible. They could optimize it, but only by making the GTK apps look less like the KDE ones.

    They obviously think that KDE users will primarily be using QT apps, and that blending in visually with that is more important than performance for any GTK apps the user might want to run.

    The issue doesn't (necessarily) affect Qt/KDE apps - just GTK, so they probably aren't all that concerned about fixing it.

    Default Unity 7 Touch

    You can tap once on thin orange line, the handle appears, then you gan drag it anywhere you want.

    or you can simply scroll by dragging the contents with two fingures (or one fingure if you set it up).
