*Sigh*, at the beginning of the discussion I said 'with server side decoration the window will resize smoothly but the content of the window will be "ugly"' so I know..
>objectively speaking, the scaled content looks worse than genuine client-rendered content
And "objectively speaking" having the frame of the window resize smoothly all the time is better than resizing jerkily when the application is slow to answer to events.
I don't read the text of my windows while I'm resizing them, that why I care more about smooth resizing of the windows frame than having a nice content inside, that is a *trade-off* you prefer one option I prefer the other, that's all.
>And hey, if it forces app authors to actually think about making their clients more responsive to user interaction, that's no bad thing at all.
I actually agree with that, but as I've already said it's not easy at all, especially if you use a GC!
