[Explained] How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance

[

Graziotin, D., Wang, X., & Abrahamsson, P. (2015). How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance. PeerJ Computer Science, 1, e18. doi:10.7717/peerj-cs.18 Open access. Click the link and read the study.

For people having Intel graphic chipset under Gnu/Linux, performance using 3D applications or Compiz-* window manager effects has always been a problem. Intel drivers for Xorg never gave problems but have also never been brilliant. I always looked around searching for xorg.conf tuning configuration entries. Today I was simply browsing Ubuntu Wiki and discovered the UxaTesting page. I wanted to...
