My Windows 10 install flies. Boots in seconds and never slows down.
I have 5 year old mid-tier POS MacBook.
You're doing something wrong, very wrong.
You need an SSD to run it fast enough (it's why everyone thinks Macs are so fast). No other components makes as much a difference as an SSD does.
I have an i7 and 8GB of RAM, and yet Windows was slow(ish) till I upgraded to SSDs.
A lot of people without the money to afford SSD based systems? People running on older hardware?
Also, a lot of manufacturers price their SSD based systems really high. And put shit hard drives in all the lower models.
I bought my laptop in stages, first the HDD version, then the SSD upgrade some time later. I have an external hard drive now as a bonus :p
@RememberMe well, actually my ubuntu run on ssd.
And yes, ssd is too expensive, I can't afford 2 pcs of 512gb ssd.
I just write this rant when I log into windows and its start doing its thing... What I mean thing in here is "We're preparing your pc for you, it's gonna be fast" shit
@gajahterbang weird, man.
My Windows boots up and shuts down faster than every Linux distro I've tried.
Windows is considerably faster than any OS I've ever used on similar hardware and SSDs are cheap as fuck.
This isn't 5 years ago, you can buy a 256GB SSD for under $100. Considering the MASSIVE performance improvement and cheap cost, not having an SSD in your system today is fuckin ridiculous.
I bought an M2 256gb WD SSD a few weeks ago for my wife's NUC for 75€ brand new (latest model).
How much cheaper do you want them to be?
Of course it does, the horseshit some people post here is fuckin retarted at times.
Windows 10 KILLS a Ubuntu or Mint install in terms of performance on my old POS MacBook..
Not just booting. Just opening and using apps.. Way faster in Windows, it's not even close. Ugh.. @RememberMe
Just for kicks I should do a couple of videos of virgin native installs of Win10 and Ubuntu.
9 times out of 10 a comparable Windows 10 app will open faster, much much faster. @Lahsen2016
