And that was Win 7!
Win7 IMHO was the best of MS operating systems. But I'd forgotten just how slllloooooww it is, until I put in the hard disk with the Win7 system I'd installed to test the hardware, just before jumping into Linux with both feet. I'd already gotten used to the speed of Linux systems & it was a really painful experience, so I just deleted it & re-purposed the hard drive. It has had LM17.3 KDE 32-bit on it for about 2½ years now, several major borkages fixed which would have been impossible with Win OS.

In comparison with ANY recent Windows OS, on the same hardware, Mint 17.3 KDE flies, and Manjaro KDE is approaching orbital velocity, with a small memory footprint as an added bonus. Pretty much instant response, on an ancient (by today's standards) netbook sporting an impressive Atom N570 & massive 2GB RAM*. :mrgreen: Beat that, Microsoft. Promises, eh. Fast, useable, versatile machines .. meh :roll:

*Hobbled on MS's instructions. Hardware can technically support 4GB.
Dell Inspiron 1525 - LM17.3 CE 64-------------------Acer D255E 2GB - Manjaro KDE, LM17.3 KDE 32
Toshiba NB305 - LM17.3 Xfce 32---------------------K7S5A AMD 1.2GHz - LM17.3 Xfce 32 & WinXP-Pro
Acer Aspire E11 ES1-111M - LM18.2 KDE 64 ----Dell PII 350 64MB - Puppy 4.3 & Win98-SE
