Why don't we cure cancer before we change our children's nappies
while we're at it. If you're talking about the video being jerky
that was probably just a function of how he configured his video
driver, or how he configured X.org, or perhaps the video processing
he enabled. My video playback is not jerky. If you are talking
about the delay in loading screens that fetch a lot of data from
the database that problem could be tackled. But by and large the
people working on the UI are not the people who would work on
either video playback or DB queries.
