Mike,

I have played with your Particle Pointer and Particle Text programs and your fears are correct. The processing seems to be way too intensive for the Rasberry Pi.

I wrote the following benchmark and it shows just how slow the RPi is compared to a couple year old Pentium Quad with Hardware Accelerated Graphics drivers.

gosub getspeed
print speed
end

getspeed:
# return a rough estimate of the graphic processing of the machine
# raspberryPi 2012-07 = 31-33
# Quad core good Linux 2012-07 = 802-823
temptime = second
while temptime = second
end while
temptime = second
speed = 0
while temptime = second
plot 1,1
speed = speed + 1
end while
return

There is some talk on the forums about adding a hardware accelerated driver but it is still in the works. That would allow for QT to really shine.

Let me know what you need me to do.
