I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I've only installed it on three computers. However, I can't help but think that it runs much faster than Windows. Is this true?
I can't be sure because one of the machines is a brand new Sony Laptop with a quad core i5. The other two are much older HP's. I did a clean install on both of those, completely erasing everything on the hard drive.
You see where I'm going with this... the one is brand new and the others were wiped clean. This could totally answer for the seemingly increased speed.
My question is: Is Ubuntu really faster? Can anyone back this up? Thanks!
