Open/close window animations are too fast (120ms)
Something subtle but important happened this week. Compiz 0.9.8.0 was released to quantal and with it comes smoother, faster rendering. This should make for noticeable smoother animations.
Unfortunately, the default Ubuntu animations do not take advantage of this. I think they're around 120ms, which is too fast to appreciate. I think this should be changed to something like 250ms, or the upstream default of 200ms.
