comment Create encrypted live USB Kali or Ubuntu (Debian)
@SebastianRockefeller 1) put the additional question into a separate question and tag it wit appropriate tags (especially grub) - it is more specific and IMHO shouldn't be closed as too broad. 2) I don't think you can encrypt that much - at least not without significantly patching GRUB sources.

Have you tried something so far? What obstacles are you hitting?

comment Create encrypted live USB Kali or Ubuntu (Debian)
That's a bit out of scope of this site really (too long). Generally it is broken into these four steps. At least the first one should be described rather in depth. Encryption is described at many places as well (LUKS documentation comes to mind). The rest is probably less documented, but also less complicated (in a sense).

comment How can I see dmesg output as it changes?
Hmm, you are right - I assume watch uses popen(), which means another shell is spawned and the environment variable is then supplied by it (and thus updated on every execute run). Nice find.

Single quotes will inhibit variable expansion. Moreover, the variable is expanded only once in this example - upon invocation of watch. Thus it won't really change between invocations of dmesg. One would need to use a wrapper that would query the terminal state.

comment Why do systems become slow when doing massive writes to disk?
No one is saying the IO is caused by the application that you experience lagging. It just doesn't get as much CPU (and other resources) as it would need. And it quite certainly is not just the WM - more likely it is the whole display stack (i.e. X11). You probably also have other applications running (that again rely on the X stack) so what you see is a more or less constant load suddenly being given way less resources.

WM can actually be doing a lot of I/O via X server/Wayland compositor (not as much as copying four data streams between 2 HDDs, but it doesn't have to be completely negligible - which is probably one of the reasons awesome seems to be working a bit better than kwin in this sense).
