Funny thing regarding bmp vs jpg is that back in the day, I always converted background images to bmp since decoding of jpg images hogged my general desktop performance. Not sure if it was on the 486dx2 or later on with k6-233 and Millennium 2 graphics ..
wouldn't it only have to decode it once at startup?
I would've thought that too, but no, changing desktop image to bmp rather than jpg made a world of difference to smoothness of operation ...?
