Why would a windows computer smoke a linux computer for download speed ?
I don't know if this is normal, but I downloaded the same file from the same place, first while booted in Windows, and second (same machine) booted in Linux. First results were that Windows beat Linux by 80-100 mb/s . Now when I first looked at the numbers, I could not believe it. So I tried my test 2 more times with the same conditions. All three tests showed the same results.
Why is this so ? I have not made any intentional settings to restrict bandwidth in Linux.
Is there something to change which will alter this behavior ?
