While I'm normally on my LM 20 XFCE system, I do occasionally reboot into Windows 10. I also run FAH on Windows, but it's not nearly as fast as LM. I recently started using my CPU and Android phone to run BOINC for Universe@Home (CPU WUs in FAH are so small that they seem pointless). This is also way slower on Windows 10.

As a test, I installed Ubuntu via WSL2 and BOINC - 40 minutes per WU as compared to 135 minutes on native Windows! Has anyone tried the same with FAH? My GTX 1070 gets about 1.3m points per day on average on LM, only 950k points on Windows, so if there's any way to bump this up I'd be happy.

I fold on 3 different operating systems with a mixture of GPUs. It seems to me that in general Win 7 is slower than Win 10 which is slower than Mint 19.3.
This chart might help.

Thanks for that link. I think the biggest issue I'm having now with my Win10 install is bad/corrupted projects. I was on it for about 5 hours yesterday and none of the WUs showed up on either https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/76140 or https://folding.extremeoverclocking.com ... s=&t=76140.

I think for now I'll stick with BOINC via WSL on Windows and FAH on LM 20.

Hi Team;

I'll have lowered daily PPD for a while. I'm back to satellite internet only and the monthly bandwidth available won't let me fold as much as I'd like. To misquote Leia..Help me Starlink, your my only hope.
