while windows has all this crap and goes slow as heck. Good Luck windows Lovers and have fun with that lag :D!
Good luck with the wha-? oh, no, im sorry. no lag here. Left 4 dead runs at > 130fps, tf2 at ~90fps. 1650x1050 resolution with best possible quality, ofc; and I can open a hundred tabs in google chrome without any visible lag. Speed depends primarily on hardware, not software. No one ever said that windows is a well built OS, but it's the only choice for gamers and people who don't want to be isolated from the rest of the world. If you want a good OS and you don't know how to handle viruses and spyware, get a Unix distribution like Ubuntu. You can even get some programs to run Windows games on Linux.
Despite the relatively bad architecture and vulnerability to malware, Windows is not as bad as it tends to be portrayed. I actually run windows vista (with ubuntu and fedora also installed on the pc), which is considered to be the worst piece of software ever concieved, and despite the annoying security options, it's never really caused any harm. I downloaded about 250 torrents on my PC, visited the darkest places of the internet, and I never got a virus that did any significant harm. It does take a little while to boot, but I suppose that's normal considering I got 400gb occupied on my drive, and boot speeds aren't really a priority, i usually get something to drink while it's booting. Obviously not a perfect OS, but does there exist one? no. and windows does its job just fine
