Software for Linux of how in the Mac apps snap?


Hi,

In Mac everything seem to snap and when you open an app you feel how you have a lot of space with the application and you know it won't be lagging. How to achieve the same feeling on Linux?

I'd say that is very hardware dependant. At my workplace, we have a lot of base-model iMacs with 5400rpm hard drives. Applications do not "snap" on these Macs; there is a lot of lag and "beachballing"!

Similarly, Linux typically runs fast on powerful, compatible hardware, and Linux runs slow on weak or incompatible hardware.

You imply (without really giving any details) that Linux "lags" or "doesn't snap" on your computer. What are your hardware specs? Are you running Debian Stable, Testing, or Unstable? Have you installed the correct video drivers (if necessary)?

^ i think "everything seems to snap" was a metaphor for snappy performance, not window snapping.

Bu yeah, let's keep throwing wild interpretations at a vague OP, maybe something will come of it.
