Steam downloads and updates on Linux vs Windows 10

  • Both are on the same computer using dual boot.
    Why is Windows 10 SO MUCH SLOWER then Linux?

    Well Linux never crashes, it is FREE, no forced updates, no spyware, just an OS. Using only 1.3 gigs of memory to run the system. Windows 10 & 11 try to use about 6.5 gigs just to run the OS.

    Downloading and updating Steam games on Linux like all things Linux LIGHNING FAST!

    Downloading and updating Steam games on Windows 10 Pro like all things on Windows SUPER SLOW!

    LOL Why do people still use Windows? Download speed SLOWER, Hard Drive speed OMG SUPER SLOW!

    If you're not upgrading to Linux you must just really like watching your windows screen sit there until Windows crashes. :)
