    [ubuntu] Re: boot is very slow

    Ubuntu boots slowly because of all the running processes to make the operating system work are starting up at specific periods of time. The reason why Windows 8 boots faster is because Windows NT/RT...
  7. Re: Is This What I Should Expect... Ubuntu is SLOW???!!!

    Hi there,
