crazyscot: Selfie, with C, in front of an alpine lake (Default)

I am quite a heavy Google Maps user. I got an invite to try the new Google Maps.

I found it completely unusable, at least on my home machine; the CPU pegged out at 100% constantly and whenever I moved, it took many seconds for the screen to update. Even typing into the feedback form took many seconds to show my keystrokes. Thankfully the email welcoming me to the preview program had a return-to-classic link that worked, taking me to a more useful (ordinary-web-based) feedback survey.

Possibly it's because I'm a Luddite with a five-year-old machine with an elderly graphics card, running Linux where the driver support is often lacking. But I am not really minded to spend $$$ upgrading when my current machine works perfectly adequately for my existing needs, TYVM.
