I feel the need for speed(not drugs)
which is faster, windows, or linux ?
i have a dual boot win xp and mandrake 9.0, and was wondering which is SUPPOSED to be faster, because windows is clearly faster to me, in everything (opening a floppy disk, cdrom, HD browsing, opening a simple mozilla/I.E. web browser, playing simple games like solitare).
why is my linux slow ? would slackware 8.1 be faster than mandrake 9.0 ? would red hat 8.0 be faster than mdk 9.0 ? which distro requires less RAM and other resources to run ?
