I wiped off my Windows 10 installation today. It wasn't because of the intrusive telemetry or the ads in the start menu but desktop composition. It adds some slight but noticeable latency that makes typing feel uncomfortable. In Windows 7 you can turn it off.

If you're fine with unresponsive UI operations and graphical tearing, then, sure, go back to Windows 7 or earlier and turn off compositing to get a few ms back when typing.

Not sure Beta was ever applied to Wayland, but its on by default in Fedora Gnome.

Not that it matters for composting lag. It should be the same kind of issue for compositors implementing Wayland, unless there is a way to turn of vsync.
