Slow, yes. Just spinning at high CPU, no.

Depends on the workloads I guess… and on laptop vs not.

That may all be true (I got it via the backports list though, and
*most* maintainers don’t complain all that much for bpo bugs in the
BTS, and I’d definitely not call it unsupported, it’s even in LTS,
not yet ELTS, even if backports don’t do LTS) but these all don’t
make writing things like that to users of older hardware acceptable.
