comment How to track a program's disk usage over time?
Are I/O bytes only bytes written to disk, and not written to memory? And are these bytes all-inclusive of any/all possible bytes that Firefox has written to drive, or is it only bytes written to the pagefile (for example)?

comment Why does my desktop look much worse after upgrading to windows 8.1?
@jamesson Actually, if you'd read the question, I wasn't asking for a definitive statement :) Regardless, you (first) chided me for a nonstandard metric -- whether you're asking about your system or not, you're still asking for something without any standardized metric, and in an opinion-based format (adding pictures gave objectivity). What's "much worse" to you may be "no problem" to someone else, or a "catastrophic failure" to another.

comment How much “jarring” is enough to damage a hard drive?
@jamesson Of course that can be done. Go ask a statistician what they do for a living :)
