I drew the above comic strip almost ten years ago. Back then, most folks had phone modems and were dialing into their internet connection.  They were crawling along at snail like speeds. It took forever for images, video and other large files to download. I remember having to wait 30 to 40 minutes to update a web page. It took that long to upload images, files  and other changes.

Today, with most households clipping along at broadband speeds, the slowest part of the internet connection is sometimes the computer itself.  And most of these home system are running Windows. And, over time, Windows gets slower.  Windows is susceptible to malware, spyware, pop-ups, etc. all of which slows the performance of the system.  These unwanted guests clog memory, run in the background eating up resources and just bog down the system

If you want to improve overall computer system performance, switch to Linux.  Linux is immune to Windows malware, spyware and viruses. You won't need an anti-virus program or any other defensive app running in the background  blockin potential threats. Linux is immune to those threats.  So, Linux is free to use all its resources to run the programs you want to run.

Get a faster system. Get Linux!
