Re: [Gimp-developer] gimp 2.8 prohibitively slow

Alexandre - on this list many simply peoples (I mean not programmers
or tech addicted guys) just come to ask questions or talk about
problems they got using GIMP - they need simply answers. Generally
they just observe and ask, they don't bring accusations. 
Simply put - for John Doe - GIMP 2.8  (not 2.8.x) is slower than GIMP
2.6 or 2.7. This what any average GIMP user can observe withe a free

They simply don't use 2.8.x from Partha, they don't compile, they
don't follow the development progress - they just need a plain simple
answer to a simple question. I didn't say that GIMP is slow because of
GEGL (or GEGL is slow) I just explain that GIMP is in a transition to
a new graphic core and developers need bug reports if possible not
just words like " ..GIMP 2.8 is slow".Without a bug report or a test
case such affirmations are useless. That's all. You also use this kind
of tone in GIMP development related articles in libregraphicsworld,
and this is why I don't understand sometime your appetite for polemic.
I will never argue about "...GEGL is slow" - in fact in 2.8.1 GEGL
operations (such Gaussian Blur perform really fast [ ..using input
boxes not UI sliders ]).

;) I will not comment this paragraph because using formal logic it's
easy (and persuasive also) to build an argumentation - but no-one need
that. We have better things to do. Let's end this out-of-topic
craziness here.
