As a long time Linux desktop user and Linux enthusiast I want bloody
screaming fast desktop :) There are some situations that I just want
to pull my hair out when I see that desktop performance just crawls to
a halt :(
When I read articles like Tales from responsivenessland I really
don't get why there aren't bells ringing in the heads of the people
who can actually make a difference for Linux desktop performance.
I was also really sad when I read interview with Con Kolivas and
the reasons why he quit kernel development.
I hope kernel developers will wake up and realise that there are also
us - Desktop users and what we need and want are responsive desktops.
Will Fedora be the first Linux distro to have sane desktop defaults
(vm.swappiness=1 and vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50). Current Fedora slogan
is "Features. Freedom. Friends. First", I hope to see "Desktop
performance" as part of it soon ;)
