Ok, Im running a speedy celeron 600, with 256sdram.
I was just wondering if typically mandrake 9.1 is slower than winXP? Im dual booted, and mandrake take so much longer to boot 1.5min-ish, and also to load appz(15sec for mozilla) compared to XP loading in 45secs, and opening IE with slashdot.org loaded in 8secs.
However, I havn't actually timed this, but its just a rough estimate. I have turned off most visual asthetics in both OS's so thats not a factor.
I have mandrake installed with the typical software/kernel. What if anything can be done to speed this up?
Thx for any suggestions
