"Heavens forbid that the best candidates are picked! Oh the horror!"

Evidently you aren't particularly bright. Only 1 women was hired for 1,231 men. That is indisputable Prima Facia evidence that picking the best candidate is exactly what couldn't possibly have happened, your absurd implication that all women are incompetent not withstanding..

"is something else picking them off earlier in the production chain such that Facebook's hiring is simply an accurate representation of the candidates it has to work with?'"

You are kidding right? Do you really question if it might be true that only 1 in 1,231 candidates would be qualified women? Seriously?

" If I attempt to migrate to 'window manager x', not only do I need to spend my own time doing it but I will be almost assured of running into issues here and there that may not be insurmountable but will take even more of my valuable time.

I'm confused. What makes your system so special? I mean every application I know runs fine with KDE, Gnome, LXDE, fvwm2, Fluxbox, Blackbox, etc. What makes yours so WM-Centric?

"The linux laptop I use comes pre-built and unfortunately I don't have the flexibility to modify it in that way. I'm stuck with Gnome and whatever scheduler the OS comes with."

What distribution could you possibly be using that doesn't allow you the flexibility to modify it? Or do you not have root access?

" If there are schedulers that are much better, I would question why the particular distro I am using wouldn't just pick the one that works better."

That statement makes it seem pretty evident that you have but a vague understanding of Linux distributions, esp. wrt the one you are using.

"In my experience, Linux desktop response suffers"

You hit the nail on the head, but I don't think you realize it. It is your experience,or more accurately lack thereof, that has you complaining about poor response rather than tweaking your system to perform properly.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.
