    Ubuntu is slower than Windows for me

    Windows 7 was faster than Ubuntu for me. Everything seems laggy.

    I'm running ZevenOS on a Asus eeePC 1001PX.

    Can anyone help me figure out why?

    Re: Ubuntu is slower than Windows for me

    I have no idea why you are running ZevonOS on an Asus eeePC 1001PX.

    I joke

    But, could you clarify: are you running the ZevonOS LiveCD (google tells me that is the idea behind ZevonOS)....? LiveCD's are always slow as a snail.

    Are you under the impression that ZevonOS is Ubuntu or something...?

    Exactly, ZevenOS has nothing to do with Ubuntu.
    Try the original Ubuntu instead.

    I was under the impression that ZevenOs is based on Ubuntu- from ZevenOS' website

    ...based on Ubuntu Linux (especially: Xubuntu)
    And no, I've installed ZevenOS and am not running it from USB/CD. And actually, the "idea" behind ZevenOS is-

    ...in order to preserve some of the extraordinary features of the formerly wellknown BeOS operating system (upon the Linux kernel).

    Tried. Same thing. ZevenOS is built on Ubuntu.

    I have an Ubuntu-based distribution on my netbook that I prefer to vanilla ubuntu, as well.

    Are you asking why ZevenOS proforms differently than Ubuntu? Because it includes different software, and has a different focus for a different audience.

    Ubuntu is designed, primarily, to derive revenue from businesses installing it on their full-powered desktop computers and contracting support from Canonical.

    Not for guys like you and I to use on our netbooks - various Ubuntu derivatives are better for that, IMO, but we still benefit from the existence of Ubuntu when using its derivatives on our netbooks.

    I admit I did not know about it that it is built on Ubuntu but anyway it has nothing to do with Ubuntu.
    And now instead of saying X is slower as Y, can you exactly explain what is your problem or was your problem with both OS's, error messages, Kernel, hard ware specs, which version, etc, anything what would be of interest to understand what you want.
    There is a guide about how to ask questions, with your statement nobody will understand anything what you want to say.

    Try pure Ubuntu. It is the best!
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"

    No, Ubuntu performs the same. I've had both on this netbook and both are as laggy. I'm asking why Ubuntu performs slower than Windows 7, despite being lead to believe otherwise.

    Ubuntu is designed, primarily, to derive revenue from businesses installing it on their full-powered desktop computers and contracting support from Canonical.

    I think the main Ubuntu website and advertising scheme would say the complete opposite. It's aimed to average joe users (which explains the whole social networking integration and so forth).

    That distro is not intended for a netbook.Ubuntu has a version just for netbooks. I use both Win7 and Ubuntu on my box and the performance is the same....with Ubuntu being a little faster at somethings. Try turning off desktop effects.
