>all of them are less responsive than Windows 10

Why do people use this shit? It's the slowest fucking OS I have ever used.

Windows 10 fucking FLIES compared to Linux distros.

Why? And don't fucking tell me Linux is faster than Windows 10 because it's not. It's the slowest piece of shit ever.

Is this why you freetards rice your desktops to look like a wall of text? Because it can't handle a modern desktop UI that Windows and Mac PC's have?

Serious fucking question.

It's true what you're saying, and it makes sense that Windows has been extremely optimized to run fast given there's a huge company behind it and doesn't have to be as "generic" and portable as GNU/Linux.

But, it all really boils down to what DE/WM you're using. I'm pretty sure Openbox for example would be blazing fast on even ancient hardware, especially when it's using some very bare bones OS like Arch. You just need to know what you're doing with Linux, Windows takes a lot of decisions on your behalf to make sure everything works as intended (which is fine)

These people hate Linux and have used windows all their lives, they don't want to learn anything. They just want to bash Linux with their lives.
To do this, instead of taking the normal route of bashing it, they take the passive-aggressive route, like asking a question "why do people use this shit?", " what am I doing wrong?", "please explain it to me?"
After reading these questions, innocent users like us get drawn to help the poor bastards like op, who sit behind their monitors and laugh like anything.

You're loading just a small part of the movie when you open the file, your media player doesn't transfer the whole movie before starting it. 48x DVD transfer rate tends to be 2-3 times slower than a modern HDD (and that's ignoring the possibility of using an SSD). Not only that, but DVDs perform a lot better when reading continuous data (i.e. a movie) than reading random files in an OS or software package. Also generally a DVD will stop spinning when idle, meaning it will need to spin up again to access something, increasing response time (HDDs do this too but tend to spin up from idle faster).

It all stacks up to make running an OS from a DVD considerably slower than from a HDD.

Windows 10 just resumes, that's all.
If you want to see how long Window 10 takes to start you need to force a full shutdown.
Open CMD and type
 shutdown /s /t 0 

This will shutdown the machine entirely. Now start it up, it'll take much longer.
Windows 8 and 10 don't actually shutdown when you tell them to shutdown, they close open applications and hibernate the kernel.

Honestly it's hard for Linux not to outperform Windows given all the bloat it has. I don't have numbers to back me up but I can tell you from experience that applications boot faster from my shitty HDD with Debian Linux than they do from my high quality SSD on Windows. That alone says a lot. Even the OS itself boots in approximately the same time (Windows boot time off of an SSD is impressive desu but Debian takes about 15% longer off of my HDD. Which is still under 5 seconds).

In terms of interface responsiveness, Linux also wins out in my experience. Moving windows around feels zippy and instant vs windows where doing a quick keyboard based move of a window across three monitors can be a little laggy.

Overall I'm fine with windows personally but I don't think it's unrealistic to claim that Linux is at least 50% faster at basic tasks. For general processing though (e.g. compiling a software package) it's probably only like 10% faster though.

Oops forgot to mention that I was using Cinnamon for my comparison of UI responsiveness since its objectively the best window manager for normies. I normally run xmonad but that's not a fair comparison because it's too lightweight for normies.
>>
>>52945711
Yeah, that's what I was talking about. Although I feel that moving files/archiving/unarchiving is much faster on GNU/Linux. But that's just me.
>>
>>52935036
I don't know anon, I'm using Fedora with e19 on my d2500 and it's a hell of a lot faster than windows 10 was.
Uses a third as much ram too.
>>
>>52945754
Yeah that's what I meant by basic tasks. I wouldn't say it's more than 50% more performant though. Also a part of it is the partition file system being better.
>>
>>52945749
I use Ubuntu Unity. Not sure what all the hate is. It is super fast and fluid, pretty low on resources idling at around ~450 mb ram, and I think it looks decent out of the box, but change the cursor to an OS X themed one, like http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ubuntu+OS+X+Cursors?content=174526, but Flatabulous theme on, like this https://github.com/anmoljagetia/Flatabulous, and then use Numix Circle for your icons, and you're all set. That and maybe add the unity tweak tool to change some stuff.

I run on an SSD, and everything just out performs windows by at least 20%, but for most things, it's around 50%, like you said, sometimes even more so because of my SSD.
>>
I have a pretty old netbook with 2 gigs of ram.
With XP it was quite fast because it was designed for it. Updating to Windows 7 was the biggest mistake I made. Fully booting the system could take upto 5 min because it fucking kept swapping to the hdd for no reason. Opening a browser, again swapping endlessly.
It was deliberately keeping ram usage around the 1.7G mark. So using it made me want to smash the netbook to pieces.

Debian on the same machine was like a whole new experience. Fast boot times and no delay in launching apps. Massive amounts of free ram compared to Windows made it usable for daily usage. So for old machines Linux blows Windows out of the water.

I play lots of games with an eGPU and use Linux specifically BECAUSE its faster and easier to use.

Pic related, cold boot including firmware browser, wifi, and torrents clocking in at around 6 seconds.

Plus there's Wine with PlayOnLinux

>>52946010
yeah a VM. So. I have to use some 3rd party shit to play a game at shitty settings. lame. and I only play d3. yeah for children. get the fuck out of your house.

I used linux for years I know how it works. but i also know the software doesn't compare to windows and you canot game

Short Answer - You wouldn't notice on modern hardware.
The major benefit here will not be speed but relative performance for the cost. Open source projects are usually designed and tested on *nix (linux/unix/bsd) first, and then 'ported' to Windows. Features usually creep into windows 2nd, not first.

This brings me to my next point...

Licensing fees are the hidden performance cost
If you have a 6 core Linux server it doesn't cost any money to use all 6 cores, and with the money you save on licensing you can buy more memory, or faster disks - this will be the biggest performance increase, not one OS vs Another.

Linux has unique features
There is also the case to make about Operating System features, although many programs don't yet take advantage of them... In the case of epoll vs select() or poll() - windows does not have an equivelant, nor does it have sendfile, or a threads implementation similar to pthreads in 2.6+ Kernels.

Memory and Disk are always the Bottleneck
Processors are SO fast nowadays, processors are eternally starved (yes starved) for data - the system memory is usually 3 - 4 times slower still to this day. The processor usually does 4-5 wait cycles for every memory access. This is why processors have 3 levels of internal caching (L1, L2, L3) to help with this. Disk access will be even a larger factor - so save your licensing pennies and buy more memory, and faster disks!!!

My primary problem with Linux is kind of the same. The X situation is apparent in the entire ecosystem. Stuff gets built up on a shitty mediocre concept. Some developers believe it's so the fork in and put some lipstick on it fragmenting the software base even more. Eventually you are going to have 4 different sound subsystems with hundreds of programs above it trying to put lipstick on the pig in several layers.
>>
>>52946097But I did. debian and on to arch. I don't dislike linux. there are things I like more about it. but overall. the software is not professional and it cannot do everything. sorry.
>>
Seriously guys, which is better? Windows 7 or Windows 10?
>>
>>52946187
whatever the fuck you enjoy better, windows 10 is newer more up to date with times. runs just as fine as 7 does. up to you anon
>>
>>52946187
Windows 10 if you don't care about privacy or freedoms (even though windows 7 infringes a bit on that

Windows 7 if you want some privacy

GNU/Linux would be a good choice though.

>>52946205

I'll mainly use my new desktop for videogames.
I think I'll try windows 10, if it suck I'll go back to 7.
Will a stable overclock on 10 be stable on 7 as well?
>>
>>52945797
I don't think it's terrible like most other people here do, all I'm saying is that Cinnamon is clearly better overall. Cleaner, more logical interface, non hideous default theme, free of excessive eye candy bloat. Also 450mb seems a little on the high side but I might be wrong on that (don't currently have access to my desktop or laptop).
>>
Cause they use ancient scheduling algorithms and open source gfx drivers def do not support pre-emption. We barely got that shit working on windows at Intel.
>>
>>52946462
Most DE's hover around that ram usage, and I do like Cinnamon, it's a fantastic DE, but for me, I personally prefer Unity.

>>52946187
Windows 7 with the spyware removed
>this is really a question
>>
>>52935178
Okay sir, are you running Linux right now? Windows 10 is more secure and has more support.
>>
>>52946818
>more secure
top fucking kek

fuck off pajeet
>>
>>52946013
Pretty damn fast.
>>
>>52946844
Yes sir, and more supported.
>>
>>52947207
I will argue that it's not as secure as Linux (because it's not), but it should have more support than Linux, but even then I find that difficult to believe, as it's hard to find a solution to your problem on windows rather than google specific issue and find an ubuntu post thing or looking at the arch wiki. Lovely photo by the way, I had myself a good chuckle.
>>
>>52945974
There are over 1800 games on Linux you fucking daft retard. THIS IS 2016.
>>
>Why do people use this shit? It's the slowest fucking OS I have ever used.

In what way is it slower?
Have you installed it to a hard drive?
Slow??? have you been using KDE? You know linux is a kernel, right, and that the desktop you use on top of the kernel is important, right?
So you set up your pentium 4 with KDE Plasma and it runs slow?
OK tell us more about this slowness
>>
>>52947529
if you have to reboot just once into windows to play a game, there is no point in going to linux in the first place
>>
>>52947688
Then don't play games that aren't on Linux.
>>
>>52947688
That's my secret, I don't allow windows to be on my computer.
>>
>>52947462
I never understood why people keep trying to say this. You are far more likely to find information on how to fix a problem when dealing with windows because there are so many people using it.

Half the time with linux you get a fucking 15 year old bulletin board text archive that is irrelevant, or you get an apple tier response of 'why would you want to do that?'
>>
>>52947700
Yeah, it would make more devs support the Linux platform.

Bullshit, I've tried numerous distros and I'm a Win baby and can confirm Linux is in fact faster. If you wait for all the updates to finish, and actually have working drivers it "flies"
