Re: Aisleriot/Blackjack cards

I knew that Bonded was optimized for speed but 2.5 times sure sounds
like a lot. I tested it on my old computer (1300MHz celeron, 384 ram,
sis graphics) but I could not feel any difference between Bonded and
Anglo there. I'm in the middle of installing gutsy on my even-older pc
(400 MHz), I'm sure I'll feel the difference there...

IMO we shouldn't hold back development for the low spec users forever.
At some point we have to accept increased cost to make things
better/prettier. As ultra low spec users become a minority (I assume)
I'd say it's fair to default to the more costly and let the low spec
users install Bonded if needed.
