That's a pretty good point.
- an amd-64 2800+, and I use the k7 kernel
- a Radeon 9800, for which I use the fglrx driver, with acceleration on.
And when I use firefox or any of the gnome/gtk+ programs, it feels
like I'm back on my old duron 700 MHz... :(
Everything is super snappy when I'm in windows 2000...
What do I do?
