Benchmarks "We have compared the 32-bit and 64-bit performance of Ubuntu and started a performance comparison of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, but how does the performance of the upcoming Feisty Fawn release compare to that of Fedora 7? In this article we have enclosed benchmarks from Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5. In gaming and desktop benchmarks, which of these Linux distributions is faster?"

RE[5]: Important metrics for me

and having 30 windows open is of course horrible on a single desktop, but yes, that can be done.

Why use single desktop?

What IS horrible is that it takes word several minutes to become usable after you selected and opened 5 files at the same time...

Still cannot understand what's problem with Word? Never heard any complaints from Word power users (myself I'm not) who work with multiple documents.

And the lack of Focus stealing prevention is horrible as well. If you open 5 word files, and word is 'working' on that in the background, it's pretty annoying to read a website - every time it has finished loading a word file, word pops up on the foreground, even when you're typing in firefox or whatever. At least KDE has proper window management - as long as you're actually WORKING in a window, another window doesn't pop up in front. But when you start an app, it DOES. Hard to describe to a windows user, I guess, let me just say it DOESN'T ANNOY THE HELL OUT OF ME. Like windows does.

Tweak UI -> General -> Prevent applications from stealing focus

Many don't try to properly use the scrollwheel anymore (like, for scrolling - in windows, it only works in the active application

My mouse driver has this option, and scrolling in inactive windows does work.

Not over tabs, not over the taskbar, not over the volume icon, not in non-focused apps, and often not even in the focused app - esp in dialogs, you often have to click the scrollbar first. WTF does microsoft think the scrollwheel is made for???)

Well, this features are available with freeware tools, but overall I agree with you that scrolling could be implemented better in explorer.
