Does Crossover Run more slowly with Gnome 3

I am about to upgrade to mint 12, and I am worried that crossover won't run is this true is there is any reduction in speed. IF there is can you explain to me why.

As far as I've been able to tell there's no overall reduction in speed once your applications have been launched GNOME 3, though I think the launching process itself takes a bit longer.

This is entirely anecdotal - I switched over to Unity with Ubuntu 11.10 a little while ago so I can't benchmark, but previously I was using Fedora 15 with GNOME 3.

I have been running it on Fedora 15 & 16 with no real issues that I know of.

With F16, I think CD support may be a bit quirky as Red Hat is killing support for HAL and Codeweavers still is using it for device detection, but since I rarely install with discs anymore, I can't say I will ever be able to tell :D Steam, MMOs, Desura have all negated the need for physical media.

I suppose if I can get around to it, I can try doing a framerate test somehow between GNOME 3.2 and KDE 4.whatever I have. But to be honest, GNOME3 feels lighter than GNOME2 and KDE4.
