ParrotOS is another nice Security based Debian Linux Distro i found the other week but if your a windows user the placement of the “minimise and maximise” windows buttons is very frustating as there on the left side.
Open the menu and select “Control Center”. Then from the “Look and feel” section select “MATE Tweak” and then from the left side pick “Windows”.
Change the “Window control placement” from left to right.
Parrot Security (ParrotOS, Parrot) is a Free and Open source GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian Stable designed for security experts, developers and privacy aware people.
It includes a full portable arsenal for IT security and digital forensics operations. It also includes everything you need to develop your own programs or protect your privacy while surfing the net.
Parrot is available in three main editions, Security, Home and Architect Edition, even as Virtual Machine (Virtual Box, Parallels and VMware), on Raspberry Pi and also on Docker.
From version 5.0 LTS, support for ARM platforms (arm64 and armhf) is back, and some images are also available for boards like Raspberry Pi.
The operating system ships by default with MATE Desktop Environment, but it is possible to install others DEs.

The solution is to run the command;
Every time i would put on the Quest 2 VR headset in game and in the Oculus home screen would lag down to 8fps.
It would do this every time i put on the headset when it was linked up via a USB 3.0 cable. The headset had no problems with any other game and the game ran fine when in non VR mode. The PC was Windows 10 fully updated with drivers and updates.
So i tried everything i could think of to fix this problem and it was alot.
Latest BETA Oculus Software
Latest BETA Graphics Card Drivers
Uninstall & Reinstall of Graphics cards with clean install and DDU
Lowering graphics settings in game
Complete Reinstall of Windows 10
Oculus Tray Tool
Power Plan settings
The reinstall: This was where most PC problems get resolved and at first when i booted the game up up with a brand new Windows 10 install the game ran fine in VR.
Then i thought the problem was fixed so as i began reinstalling software like Steam,Visual Studio,Visual Code,Bit defender. The problem unexpectedly started happening again which was incredibly frustrating to say the least.
then i had an Eureka moment, the problem seemed to come back when i reinstalled Bit-defender. So i thought it must be interfering somehow with the game?
I then fired up the Bit defender settings and added the folder where the game is installed to the Exclusion list of Bit defender.
After trying the game again with the new settings in Bit defender, the stuttering and loss of fps went away!
Windows 10 Wont enter sleep mode with Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick plugged in.
I ran into this problem a while back as no matter what i did my PC would enter sleep mode. i tried everything;
windows power saver settings
Turns out it was due to having the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick plugged in which i might add is a superb Joystick for Flight Simulator 2020.
Geforce Experience Bug:
Turned out, there is a bug in nVIDIA experience, down in the Windows driver level that would prevent the system from being idle, if you have a joystick plugged in (the article goes a bit deeper into details, it is very interesting if you are a software development related kind of person).
TL:DR , if you have nVIDIA GPU + nVIDIA GeForce Experience installed + have any kind of joystick plugged into the system , Windows won’t be able to sleep/turn screen off automatically until either:
You turn off nVIDIA GeForce Experience in-game overlay.
