[Bug 755841]


No. (Though there maybe some hardware which may require TearFree by
default to function correctly, in which case it will be enabled
automatically.) The problem is that it increases memory allocation
considerably and reduces performance, giving you the same penalty as
using a compositor. If you then use a compositor on top, you use even
more memory to achieve the same effect. As such it is optional.
