Smooth scrolling has to be one of the most disgusting features ever invented, i try to disable it everywhere. I tasted a little vomit in my mouth when i updated my firefox and it was there suddenly.

I don't give a fuck about LIbreOffice, they killed best waifu and mascot. Just use Gnumeric.

Not really - I've been using OO or LO for years now in study and work environments.
Never once used smooth scrolling and never lamented it's non inclusion.
Then again I just use what's at hand rather than acting like a fucking autistic retard.

The PROTIP here is that despite the fact that you're trying to take the higher ground in this argument you've come off looking like a prissy, whiney idiot.
Well done you!

But no one wants you to switch from Windows. Frankly, most of us are hoping you stay there and stop looking for alternatives.

I don't give a shit about smooth scrolling, but LO is primitive in comparison to MS Office unfortunately. As it stands I would rather use WPS, even.

a.) pointless UI tinsel. Computing in general needs less of that. Smooth scrolling is the epitome of sizzle over steak.
b.) distracting to the eye. Its doomed to be, since its trying to mimic how motion looks in the real world.
c.) slower than scrolling through a document without smoothing. Makes your interface feel sluggish, even if the actual computing resources consumed are negligible.
d.) said resources might not be negligible, if you're on an RPi, in a VM, etc.

>> No.64793659

I don't know what's a smooth scrolling anyway

>> No.64793669

Depends on how your distro packages it.

>> No.64793720

I agree smooth scrolling is overrated.

Whats important is just minimal latency from when you scroll the wheel and when it moves on screen.

Also font rendering quality is important since it affects reading comfort.

>> No.64793726

Its something pot heads do dont worry about it
