I'm going to reinstall an operating system in my computer. I had Windows 10 earlier, and now I'm thinking of using Ubuntu. I haven't used Ubuntu before, so I have a few doubts.

Does Ubuntu run faster than Windows 10?

  • Is Ubuntu faster than Windows is a broad topic that depends on many topics including your computer's hardware. Try running the Ubuntu live USB (which can also be used to install Ubuntu) from a live session without installing it to your computer's hard drive. Then you can compare Ubuntu's performance with Windows 10's performance overall and on a per application basis.

    Ubuntu runs faster than Windows on every computer that I have ever tested. LibreOffice (Ubuntu's default office suite) runs much faster than Microsoft Office on every computer that I have ever tested. Many Windows games can also being installed on Ubuntu using Wine, and they usually run faster (and better) in Windows than they do in Wine.

    There are several different flavors of Ubuntu ranging from vanilla Ubuntu to the faster lightweight flavors like Lubuntu and Xubuntu, which allows the user to select the Ubuntu flavor that is most compatible with the computer's hardware.
