How do the three versions compare to any Linux distro?

By jmmckee ·
Without intending to start an OS war, I am wondering how a Linux distro compares to the three versions of Windows, just startup and shutdown. Different Linux distros might well have different times. But, testing all of them would be impractical. Maybe just pick a current distro from Ubuntu or Fedora, just to compare.

RE: How do the three versions compare to any Linux Distro?

Generally speaking any Nix is Faster, and is defiantly more secure than any version of Windows out of the Box.

If you harden up Windows enough to be close to the same security standard of Nix it's slower to execute commands like opening new applications or do things.

The more Eye Candy that is involved in the Distro's only serve to slow things down a bit more so if you tweak any Nix Distro it's got to be faster more stable and secure than any Windows OS.
