Description Alex Negulescu 2010-01-20 19:35:57 MSK
When using this theme, no matter the kernel version, hardware, arhitecture (32b, 64b) or gtk version, most apps using gtk are very slow and sluggish.
Example of apps:
- synaptic
- bluefish
- bluefish-unstable
- geany
- gimp

Most GTK apps that use tabs or have icons in them are sluggish, and for bluefish-unstable and geany, the more tabs you open, the more sluggish they get.

Looks like this theme just not a very good performer.

You can use GtkPerf to compare performance and UI responsiveness of various themes:
