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.

You are welcome ;)
Indeed, I believe that Mandriva is now a much better choice than SUSE.
Another great favourite of mine is Kanotix: free, complete, great support, easy to use thanks to Kano's scripts and the wiki. Great laptop support as well.

You made my day. You made me laugh so hard...thank you mate. 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.

Yea, it's a great OS too; once you install the gnu utilities and recompile your kernel to work with your ext3 disks ;) .
I must say they have the easiest kernel recompiles and installs; but the fact that you have to do it more often because of the lack of modules...

It does boot faster, probably saves you a solid 25% of the boot time by being a big c program instead of shell scripts: Of course it's probably 5 times faster than Mandrake, but Mandrake's never been known for quick boots.

There's actually a lot of truth to your sarcastic statement. The linux kernel is so configurable, usually problems with it are with the configuration being wrong.

But you're too wrapped up in your "superior" bsd habits to accept the idea of linux and bsd coexisting. I'm just guessing here, based on previous "superior" bsd users I've met. It's one of the things that's always kept me off bsd; aside from the technical issues.
