We're aware of the performance issues on certain platforms, and indeed the generally mediocre performance on all platforms, and we're gradually working on it, however I thought I'd put a note here about Linux.

I have three Linux boxes here, two of which I've tried it on. On one, the mac mini running Debian, with genuine nvidia driver it is perfectly acceptable and usable. On my eee though, it's unbearable. In particular, it's unbearable when the mouse is over the screen, this means that the only time it works "ok" is when you play the graph and keep the mouse the hell away from it. This is also Debian, however it has the intel graphics chipset and a much slower CPU.

I believe that it should be usable, easily, on an eee performance box and lean on any other box, so we will get around to fixing this behaviour, however please be patient as it's not a priority. UI usability and general correctness of features and compatibility to existing and upcoming log formats are higher priority. Once the UI stuff is good enough, expect some work on this issue.

Thanks for your patience!

Fred.
