The motivation change might come from a) situation like sleep, nutrition, noise, concentration b) psychichal disease/illness c) your personality

It could be depression, psychosis, ADS but also a “scanner personality” etc. For mental health only a psychiatrist is competent. For personality a psychologist (or maybe a therapeut). For general health (body) and situation you yourself are the person which is responsible.

And yes, I have that, too. My personal solution (not neccessarily the right one for you) is to carefully select a few projects and concentrate on them. How this helps? It prevents me from hopping from one thing to the other.

Try cycling the exam topics for a change/versality.

One more comment: If you aren’t able to concentrate or focus on the exams then get professional help soon!


I don’t want to mess with the system just to get it running. That’s why I don’t use BSD or Arch. (I use Xubuntu.) Surely Linux needs still more hassle than Windows to get things running, but it has improved a lot on that, and still is improving.


Thanks for your contributions in the past and for considering contributing in the future. It’S perfectly understandanble that you (like everybody) have limited time.

I’m not sure about the bugs you mentioned. I haven’t had a Thunar bug for a while. But I remember vaguely now that some large file operations aborted silently before being completed. When I delete several hundreds of files on an USB stick it takes forever but I thought this is due to the filesystem (freeing up every single cluster) and not specific to Thunar, but I may be wrong on this.


What bugs? (I didn’t encounter any. I use Thunar version 1.8.14)


Thanks for the links. I always thought BSD kernel with Linux userland would be cool (for me). I’ll try that out.


Interesting style. I think no Linux file manager can display in that style.


I love Thunar. I can open a terminal right in the current directory. Unfortunately you often have to install the icon set manually when you install it without Gnome.

I don’t know what Mac style means.


Thanks for the info and for the link.

I quote what it does from there:

  • CPU governor
  • I/O priority
  • Process niceness
  • Kernel scheduler (SCHED_ISO)
  • Screensaver inhibiting
  • GPU performance mode (NVIDIA and AMD), GPU overclocking (NVIDIA)
  • Custom scripts

I still fear that I would crush my installed Linux with gamemode.


This looks a bit shady. Im not gonna use a weird OS tweak. Maybe if some sound source (like a magazine) reports about it.


I doubt that usability is the same for every user. Some may find KDE the most usable, others XFCE and so on…

And Gnome gets a rather bad review, I’m not sure if that’s fair.

I personally don’t use a desktop environment at all, just a window manager.


No, it will have better design decisions from the beginning. What you are talking about are bugs. Yes, first version (of iPhone or anything else) has those bug-problems. But I mean the way the user is treated by the OS. The Desktop GNU/Linux experience is different from the Android Linux or Apple iPhone experience. You like the Android/Apple way (when it comes to practical things), I don’t.


I don’t know how the OP thinks. But for me there aren’t political reasons. Instead I mean the quality. There are severe bugs (like losing phone contacts) and badly designed GUIs (both Android and iPhone.)


I have an Android phone and my father has an iPhone. Both are sheer crap, really. So I can’t wait for having enough money for buying a PinePhone.


And the control goes even further:

You decide which software you install (EDIT: including even system software while in Windows you are normally stuck to the official desktop-software and stuff like that).

With a basic distro (Arch, K1ss etc.) you control even the system conf/setup.

You control even which init/daemon system you use. You don’t like systemd? Then there are distros for that, too.

And you can tweak your kernel.




Yeah, it’s a sneaky way to turn it into proprietary software. On the question “How do you respond to those who believe that a CLA is against the spirit of the GPL?” they don’t answer, they just hedge around the topic. I don’t like what I read in that FAQ.


Systemd breaks a Unix principle, namely “Do only one thing and do it well”. It sort of envades into areas of the system where the init system previously did not. (Some say systemd isn’t an init system.)

But systemd seems to boot faster than previous init systems because it uses compiled tools instead of scripts.

And yes, the casual end user (in contrast to a sysadmin or system programmer) probably shouldn’t notice any difference with or without systemd.


I quote from the article: “This is nothing to sneeze at” and “this was no failure”. So it’s good!
