Sorry if I was harsh - but I was referring to your single-word "No." post. Why
would you post that? What you write here is much more helpful. As for my own
experience, like I said, I don't have any personally with Linux/Fedora, but I
know that I was able to get an improvement on a similar OS, and I know that
others have reported that improvements were possible under Linux. So I gave him
info and pointers that I thought would help him investigate what he wanted to
know, rather than a one-word "shut up" answer.
