Hi, I am using Ubuntu and Windows Xp in dual boot. Ubuntu runs fine but the problem is that, compared to Xp, ubuntu runs very slow. Programs take much time to load, linux file manager is also very slow compared to windows explorer. And internet browing is also slower in ubuntu. I have AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 754 pin. 512 MB DDR 400 RAM. 500GB Seagate Harddisk. I don't have any graphics card. I have to share my RAM for increasing graphics. Does my configuration has anything to do with this problem? Or Linux is slower than windows OSes.
