Linux is quicker!

For those of you who don't know what "Linux" is - it's another operating system that you can install on your PC instead of Windows.

What I'm currently finding is that my Linux PC is quicker for web browsing than my Windows XP machine. They are both comparable is specification (Windows is on an Athlon 1700 with RAID, Linux on Athlon 2000 no RAID, both with good video cards, both sharing an ethernet Adsl router).[I use Explorer on XP, and Mozilla on Linux]

I'm not too sure what it is - perhaps it's the Javascript side that executes quicker - but has anybody else noticed much of a difference?

RE: Linux is quicker!

If you want even better speed you should try Opera under Linux (http://www.opera.com) In my opinion it's the best browser around, appart from having slightly poor CSS support.

RE: Linux is quicker!

I have tried Opera on Windows 95 on a really old laptop - and it relly flew! So if that's anything to go by, then I'm sure on Linux it's very good!
