Description of problem:
Immediate response to Alt-Tab creates fake perception of lag,
simple would be to perform switch to next window
only then Alt-Tab is released.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Alt-Tab
2. Release Alt-Tab
3. perform switch
I think this way Alt-TAB feels more natural. :))
This should be UX.
You bring up alt tab screen then you press alt tab,
but the choice has already been made. :)
fff ffffffffffffffffff fffffffffffffffffffffff
Excuse these letters. >:]
Basically Alt tab is very unnatural,
you have to redo it either using animation
or changing order here somehow.
Here is how I would redo this:
alt tab > bring up alt tab selection and screen show selected window > show the rest of windows a bit later
Use padding? :-)
(X is selected window)
Turn it on.
^ / ^

Turning it on would be stupid, I guess
l33t padding would suffice.
How about you show next window first?
alt tab --> animate relisting event
With alt tab combo you expect one window but you get
many instead. This is basic contradiction.
It's just too close with 4 windows or less.
:) alt tab --> big view!?
I believe this is called noob interface.

Alt-TAB > bring up interface with selected window already in the first place! :-)
This is less confusing. :))
Could I make some suggestions that will help your bug reports not being ignored?
Please try and describe the single exact issue you are seeing instead of jumping around and changing the focus of a bug all the time.
Realise that many factors go into performance issues, so saying something is 'fast' or 'slow' or 'laggy' or 'faster' or 'fast' isn't very helpfull. Can you take a objective time measurement?
Also realize that if you are looking at very small differences, it's unlikely to be something anyone has time to work on, given all the other things people work on.
Don't change the title and component and add/remove people from cc all the time. That just causes people to see it as noise and stop looking. File a bug, leave it until you are asked for more information or the maintainers of a component move it to another component or add/remove people.
Realize that abstract improvements of something are almost always done upstream. Fedora packages the software and bugs in that packaging are fine here, but if you are asking for new features or a redesign of something or changing the way it looks, thats almost always better done upstream.

I'm looking at alt tab through UX. :))
Here are different things at play like fear of loss,
flight or fight response, etc.
Alt tab has nothing to do with all that. it just switches between applications and windows.
PRESS alt tab --> ALT TAB WINDOW? O_o
Maybe better would be
PRESS alt tab --> next thing

Move selected window to a first place.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '29'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 29 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 29 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-11-26. Fedora 29 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Crazy explanation is that the alt-tab
gets confusing because it is showing
the action which has already taken
Obviously this is really minor
change in workflow.
Alt + TAB --> window --> Alt + TAB
Is better? :)
You are putting selection on 2nd position.
 x  
If you had selection on 1st position, everything would make sense. :)
x

I know why! :)
You can't see what window is minimized. Interesting
I didn't guess correctly what is wrong about ALT-TAB. :)
