"2.5 is horrible on the desktop - several users (myself included) so far have complained about sound skipping and jerky mouse and window movement"
Con Kolivas' interactivity patch fixes things up a great deal. It's now in 2.5.74-mm (Andrew Morton's kernel):
Window dragging doesn't make sound skip any more. You can still make sound skip by scrolling in Mozilla, but Con's busy tweaking the patch. Before this, ogg playing on 2.5 was definitely painful, now it's tolerable. Expect more improvement in the not too distant future, especially if you keep testing and complaining :-)
