For any serious q3 player, it's the MOST important thing to move mouse SMOOTHLY.
For me the diffrence is great when i play q3 under Windows or DGA (XFree 3.3.x and GLide2) and XFree4 ; 'window-emulate' mouse support i must use is too slow and 'jumped'.
I wouldn't write about this, but i've already played q3 smoothly under Linux (XF3.3x+glide) and it was fine so i was very disappointed when i've installed X4.

It's true, but I can say the same about Windoze and X3+glide - and in theese case frame rate is about 1/3 higher.
And i DO feel de diffrence. Seriously. Maybe it's fact, that 45fps it's lot - but when average fps is lower, then the lowest also - and in this case you'll see a big diffrence (e.g. 30 fps against 20)
The test, I performed, is "timedemo 1 ; demo demo001" (so you can check your performance also)
