I have Fraps running so I can see what FPS I am getting in games. Most games I am reaching 60 FPS on Ultra settings, but I just noticed that while I am on the Windows desktop, such as now while I am writing this, the framerate goes between 7-20 FPS.
Is it low simply because my computer isn't doing anything, or am I supposed to have a high framerate while using Windows? Aero peek, snap and all of the other effects look nice and smooth. I'm a little confused as to whether FPS matters for Windows itself.
