No the OP, but I'll spell it out for you:
I can install Linux AND update it in less than a half hour. This includes installing all my desktop apps.
I have NEVER had Linux run 100% disk usage for 35 minutes after booting by something called "CompatTelRunner.exe"
The last brand new Windows 10 laptop I set up (three weeks ago) out of the box after creating the new account ran for hours and hours sucking all bandwidth available in a low bandwidth home for Windows Updates. I could not pause or stop this insanity so I could download and install Chrome and an Antivirus of choice. I had to leave it with instructions of "call me when it finishes the updates and I'll come back and finish setting it up for you."
I have worked on many Windows 7 machines which prior to Summer 2016 would run 100% CPU on one core for hours (sometimes days if far enough behind) to get the current updates.
My Linux installs do not take 5 minutes to boot because they lack things like Adobe Updater Startup Utility, Acro Tray, Java Platform Updater, Send to OneNote, and all the various speedlauncher autostarts to mask the true amount of time it takes a program to really startup when clicked.
I have been given systems to fix one small problem only to wonder how in Hell the owner ever used such a slug of a machine. I would have junked something that ran like that. It's not the Windows Kernel. It's all the shit that comes along with it. Those equivalent applications may run with similar performance on a clean system, but very few Windows machines are lean and clean. And God help you if Windows decides it needs updates then-and-there and whatever you want be damned.
