On some occasions i had something more smooth in Linux than in Windows... we are talking little details here.
For gaming (long story)
For browsing... i tend to use FIREFOX in Linux as it is really smooth lately, better than chromium (based) browsers.
You are talking Windows Edge?
If u care about these little speed things not go for nouveau graphics drivers but the proprietary ones. If u care about absolute open source go for nouveau...
If u sure u feel ok with windows.... stick with it... but i bet ya'r ass not all will be that smooth as u wished.
Why not use DUAL BOOT? windows/linux > gaming/work&mail&surf
i know some guys who just buy a lamer windows pc for their games but they NEVER open any websites or mails on those silly thing... for that they use their Linux laptops or whateva
Windows is for kids (oh sorry i meant games)
Linux is for adults (men, you know those guys who have authority and actual power)
This is also a bit in the "brain"... linux is very snappy if u do it right, windows sucks if u do it wrong.
