I mean, I even have the Debian coffee cup at work (yea, I'm that guy). The problem comes when people use linux for the first time. They always say "it's slower than windows", and their right. Just try it with Firefox. Firefox opens in windows a lot faster than Linux.
I guess my question is: What is the best way to make linux more responsive through the desktop (I currently use Gnome)?
