Re: Benchmarking of Lubuntu themes (was: Re: Fwd: Ozone theme available for testing )


My apologies about being so"explicitly scientific". But, don't you think
that Phoronix suite is a bit heavey just for testing GTK themes? Which isn't
really its purpose (I don't really need to know the speed of my chipset,
just working over it with different themes), I'd preffer to do that with a
tools specifically designed for that, that uses Cairo for rendering controls
and other widgets, like GTKPerf does.
