Certainly we have beaten Windows in a lot a questions, but the smoothness of
Windows is not only due to the graphics chipset (it's an important factor
obviously). I think that Windows is not using GDI on a few applications. I think
is really using DirectDraw to write directly to video memory. If it is so, I don't
like this way of doing things, because DirectDraw is a focus of security problems
(no restrictions over who writes to video memory...).
Nevertheless, I expect GTK to include double buffered widget in future releases...
