    Hi

    As far as getting online, opening a documents etc, it may be that Ubuntu is faster.

    Windows 7 is faster loading software, some of the time at least, because Windows 8 doesn't preload all the stuff that Windows 7 does.

    I only had 3 or 4 things in my startup list, that's probably the biggest reason for the fast boot times.

    But once things are open they run faster in 8, I don't know if things like Skyrim or Photoshop could run faster in Ubuntu, if they would run, or not.

    But since they don't it's kind of a non issue.

    What do you run in Ubuntu?

    The only reason I've found for using it is to do things like delete a file that Windows won't let me touch or get into my computer when Windows crashes.

    Mike
