I just needed to reinstall the OS on two personal devices, one Windows and one Ubuntu. I did them at the same time and Windows 11 installs SO MUCH FASTER than Ubuntu now. Nearly twice as fast. Since when did that happen? The Ubuntu device hardware is much better too...
Did you do minimal or normal on Ubuntu? Ubuntu is massive compared to Windows in default applications. Basically one is full of apps and one has none. So if you do default installs, to do apples to oranges, you'd need to also install MS Office and loads of other tools onto Windows to be a comparison.
I did each install using default settings.
Doing a minimal install with Ubuntu would suck so much, yeah it'd be faster, but then I'd spend hours installing crap+drivers that "should just be there and work" with a Desktop OS like it is with Windows 11. (with the exception of Office, but that's a fast install, too, if it was needed)
The Ubuntu device was for me, the Windows device was for someone else to run some things that don't work well (without a mega time suck) on a Linux desktop OS.
