    Of course 1.15% of those computer users were actually happy to use linux, but were discarded due to "noise" in the data.

    Re: Working 5 hours daily on computer risks insomnia & depression

    I find when dealing with people for 5 hours I get depressed, stressed, and have high anxiety because I am reminded of such human failure. I prefer the soothing dull pain of disconnection being able to believe in myself and what I am doing.

    Hmm. The link page is from 2003, and the published study is from 2007.

    With another study as far back as 2002.

    Computer usage is usually much more social and socially rewarding than "acceptable" entertainment like reading. But "working on a computer" is still "working," and as everyone knows, working sucks.

    Re: Working 5 hours daily on computer risks insomnia & depression

    I very often spend 14hrs or more in front of a computer & it doesn't cause depression.

    But I'm doing what I want to do, not what I have to do to make money to live on.

    Big difference there.

    Dont worry, linux users are almost immune

    we also got a great community, most other users dont

    giving us a huge positive flow of energy

    of course is good to take breaks once in a while

    one or 2 hours , then take a break, then come back later, and so on
    When close to achieving you quit! If you don't try you failed. Real Winners are not afraid of losing.

    I prefer, "half an hour, crack a beer... half an hour, crack a beer, ... etc."
