Re: [ide-dev] "Typing with pleasure"

When I read the article one of the things that stuck out was that *without* zero latency turned on their own timing shows that Eclipse outperforms IntelliJ...might make a good blog :)

To be clear, in case someone who hasn't read the article misunderstands, "first keypress" doesn't mean first keypress in an entire editor session, it means first keypress in a series of keypresses all occurring within a very small interval of each other. Quoting from the IDEA zero-latency article:

"This should be enough to significantly improve the editor latency. Keep in mind though, that if subsequent blocking or repainting takes more time than a period until the next key is pressed, a typing lag is still possible."

So yes, the benchmarks results are skewed to favor the first keystroke only (and thus favor IntelliJ), but the article also says they are working on a way to solve the latency problem for all keypresses (by avoiding how they currently do locks on their document model).
