turns out that upgrading to the newest version of ubuntu was not a good idea. not because of the visual effects, not because of the tracker, (probably) not because of ubuntu itself, but because of a very strange and annoying bug which is really killing my productivity: at random points, in particular if i’m using firefox, it “forgets” that i released a key, like the short cut for closing a tab or for switching to the next tab. and there’s basically no way to stop it except killing firefox. the problem also appeared in other applications, though almost never. i’d guess that it is connected to how much the program keeps the cpu busy, and firefox is pretty good at doing that… so, what to do? i don’t know… a first few google searches haven’t helped me a bit… probably i have to spend even more time digging out information on this… i really hate wasting time like this.
