Stop trying to fake quotes from me. The post doesn't say anything about "input latency". It says if you go into device manager and click "show hidden devices" and uninstall everything that's greyed out like "root print queue" and "Microsoft Device Association Root Enumerator", your mouse cursor will feel stupidly fast for no reason like you just added 200 DPI to your mouse even though none of that stuff should have any effect on mouse movement, yet it does. Which is why I don't really recommend doing that.
It's greyed out so it shouldn't have an effect, yet altering random window settings that have nothing to do with mice has an enormous effect on mice - some in a positive way, many in a negative way. Many services are like that too. Windows is the equivalent of a Jenga cube where you just pull out one block and the entire thing implodes. Because all code is garbage. People make believe programmers are rocket scientists that have designed some type of perfect system, but it's more like random tasks outsourced to some guy in India that updates his section of the OS with some trial and error alpha code, notices it functions without the OS crashing, then just says, hmm, guess I'll leave that in.
Then someone else writes their own code doing something else that references his blackbox implementation that they have no idea what any of his code does, and nobody knows what is referencing what in the end, or what is doing something right and efficiently or what is doing something stupidly that affects tons of other things when it shouldn't. I know three programming languages myself, one completely deprecated (MEL - okay it's mostly a scripting language). If the entire thing isn't written by a single person from the ground up, it's bound to have all kinds of weird crap going on, and probably still will even if it is.
