Windows Microsft has made hard statements about perfomance improvements in Longhorn. They claim that applications will load 15% faster than in XP, while boot time is decreased by 50%. They also claimed that Longhorn will be able to wake up from sleep in 2 seconds. Users should also expect half as many reboots during patching. Time to dust of those trustworthy stopwatches.

"If Linux is slow or doesn't work, its either your mistake or its wrong distribution...excuses and more excuses == Linux

Try FreeBSD...it boots and shuts down in 20% time of Linux."

Aren't you contradicting yourself quite a bit?
You say that if linux is slow it is either your mistake or the wrong distro. But then you say that you use Red Hat 9, that it is slow but you don't consider trying something else (hint: something more modern, RH 9 is old as dirt in the fast evolving world of linux)

On top of that you advise FreeBSD but you don't use it yourself...
