To amuse myself, I’m playing with Elementary OS installed on a large USB drive on a desktop that I use to fiddle around with.
I’ve got GIMP install on the native Windows 10 OS and it works just fine and honestly I never thought twice about it.
I decided to install GIMP in EOS, for fun. OMG. It’s light years faster, even running through a USB 2.0 interface.
The load times are ages different. On all my Windows boxes, GIMP takes 15-20 seconds to load. On EOS, it’s virtually instantaneous.
Speeds for general operations are similarly affected.
Any thoughts on how I can get Linux level GIMP speeds out of a Windows install?
