I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

comment LXDE also affects gaming performance?
I think is has to do with the advancements with the compositor that is responsible for the speed, is that the video or game is still going through the compositor, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compositing_window_manager Since you are used to seeing the compositing only used for flashy effects that slow down the system, It seems It can actually improve video quality and performance (espasally since they have the option to " automatically suspending desktop effects for full-screen applications" not disable the compositor as @Bucic said.

except that using rm -rf can be dangerous if you miss-type, If you accidentally move something else, you can simply move it back.

I suggest using the mv command or at least suggesting to copy the folder elsewhere before deleting anything.

comment Can i emulate a CD-ROM through a USB cable to another computer?
It may be possible somehow, I know some small form factor pc/tablets have a mini-usb port for accessing files from another PC, and There are these devices in existence kickstarter.com/projects/elegantinvention/… zalman.com/eng/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=673 , some new android/tablet devices are using USB-OTG en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_on_the_go which lets the device be either master or slave. I suspect it is only a matter of time...
