So, probably unoptimized is not the right term. Maybe it's just _inapropriate_
to do these things on such a device, and that E, because it does so many
things, is not such a good choice however optimized it may be ?
Or maybe people really want it that way, unusable but good looking ?

Personnaly I'm using H1 partly because it feels faster (not that this
gnome desktop is particularly fast either, but at least the device do
not enter sleep mode while an app is redrawing).
