Hi all,

Please let me know on how to correct this.

Learn to type faster.

Seriously, what do you expect us to say? Your question is VERY vague, and doesn't explain what your problem is, on what version/distro of Linux, or give any details.

Are you saying that the time between pressing a key and seeing the computer respond (e.g. a letter popping into view in the text editor) is higher in Linux than on Windows?

If so, you need to supply more information:
  • does this happen in X or at the console
  • which video card do you have
  • are you using a graphical console framebuffer? What is your VGA line set to in lilo.conf or grub.conf?
  • which video driver are you using in X
  • are you using both Linux and Windows with a keyboard attached to the computer, i.e. not remotely over SSH or VNC or something like that
  • did I understand your question correctly

Some of these questions obviously suggest answers. I suspect that you're using a nonoptimal video driver.

If you simply mean that you're not fast at typing in commands, then learn the BASH shortcut keys. And learn about TAB-completion.
