Hm. The best example of slow draw times that I can find in the Moko UI is the terminal keyboard. The reason this draws slowly is because it's being drawn line by line. If it were just blitted in, it would be quite a bit faster. It's certainly true that you will see slowness as a consequence both of the slow CPU and the lack of a GPU, I would guess particularly when surfing the web. However, this is not why the UI feels slow right now.

The UI feels slow right now because when you click on a control, sometimes you get no response at all. Right now, the UI is mainly operating in the realm of "you click on something, I do something." This works well when the something happens quickly, but when it doesn't, you want "you click on something, I do something to show that your click registered, I do something." The elapsed time will be slightly longer in the second case, but the perceived UI lag will be less because you aren't wondering whether or not your tap registered.
