    Why? not to try to force anything on you, but Ubuntu will always run faster and more stable than windows. Also, you can try dualbooting.

    1. I download it. 2. I play Hide-And-Seek with the file. 3. I click it 1000000000 times. 4. It messes with the groups. 5. It proves worthless.

    Desktop Effects crashing when I try to enable my NVIDA graphics card... Firefox going slower than a turtle... Add & Remove crashing for no reason... Crazy Not Responding errors... Everything crashing just because of my Matrix shell script... So I ask you... Really?

    Not always smoother, and it can take a while to set up drivers. But it is in my experience always faster
