In Windows, the more applications and games we install, overtime, the computer slows down. Does this happen with ubuntu too?

I think I'll stick with ubuntu from now on. I rarely use Win7 now. So I want to make sure my ubuntu runs as fast as it is when first installed..

I can't speak for everyone, but I have a tonne of stuff installed and my system runs just as quick as it always has.

I've found that it's just as fast clean as after while, and I don't hear that clicking sound of a fragmented hard drive jumping around trying to find files :-)

What matters more than the number of applications you've installed is the number that you're running simultaneously and the type of load they place on the system. Disk I/O and video decoding both stress your system more than word processing. Games are usually best played with as little running in the background as possible.
