For starters, I don't mean to defend the code. It's a clear code smell and should be restructured to be asynchronous proper.

That said, it can be smooth depending on the interaction rate. No process in computing ever is smooth in reality, it's just granular on a fine-enough scale to make us, slow-reacting meatbags, think, it's smooth. In gaming, 60 FPS are, as a rule of thumb, pretty enough to make things feel smooth so if the application processes messages 60 times per second, that would feel smooth despite doing busy-wait-nonsense.
