Ubuntu 11.10 provides a small delay for displaying the tool-tip when hovering over items in the launcher. This, oddly enough, gives the impression of a sluggish desktop.

Is there anyway to disable this? I can't seem to find any option to do so in ccsm.

No, I don’t think there’s any way to change the tooltip delay. So let’s see what’s the resolution of the bug report.

UPDATE: Tooltip delay has been removed.
