      It is about scrolling, which for me must *never* be smooth, because on my pc I cannot provide any form of input that would correspond with smooth scrolling. I don't have a touchpad or touchscreen - in my pov, those are the only inputs that may cause smooth scrolling.

      Any instant action must not scroll smoothly for me. And websites that do this, I simply cannot use.

      Horrible. I don't want smooth scrolling. Ever. Anywhere.
      A tick of the mousewheel should correspond exactly with scrolling on screen.

      Otherwise I'll feel dizzy/disoriented. Disabling smooth scrolling is (should be, EDGE!!) an accessibility option, and websites that forcibly enable it can go to ****.

              Android being based on Linux is a VERY broad use of the term "based on".
              Android has a Linux kernel, but that's where the similarities end.

                    The browser should be able to figure by itself what will change.

                      This is extremely important.

                      When closing the bash terminal, all you're doing is logging out with your current user. A daemon is running as a different user, so closing that too equates to evil black magic.

                      When I start a Windows service from the command prompt, and I close that command prompt, will the service stop itself too? No.

                      Also, installed daemons should start with Windows. This issue doesn't stretch as far as "don't close daemons when closing bash" but goes as far as "daemons should work the same as on linux".

                        On desktops, the vibration could be passed into a mouse if it has a force feedback feature built in.

                        On Xbox, this feature oughta obvious, since the controllers have a vibrationb motor built in.

                        On other devices, just pass it into the regular vibration motor of the device, if it has one.

                          This is going to make absolutely dead-easy to make piecharts!

                          One use case is for a Japanese website. To create that quintessential Japanese starburst background thing, also known as the Japanese Naval ensign. Would be cool to have this natively.
