What specific performance problems have people observed so far in the
desktop?

when HDD is used by an application (copying a large file, updatedb...), all the applications respond slow. The preemptible kernel patch should solve this, but it's not enabled in FC2.


Are you sure that the preemptible kernel fixes this problem. I thought this was related to application code getting swapped out to make more room for disk cache. http://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg262920.html

Anyway the slow response does make the desktop less pleasant to use.
