Default Re: Who has faster multitasking OS/2 or Linux or Windows XP

Well Windows is designed to be a desktop OS from the out set and has advantages, Linux on the other hand was not.

I did a experiment in Linux and The GIMP 2.2.4, opened 4 of the same picture (around 80Mb with 10 layers) and applied a motion blur to one layer of each picture at the same time.

See picture below, which shows true multitasking, multithreading abilities of both Linux and The Gimp 2.
