Hello All,

I have been using Eve under Ubuntu Linux for about 10 months and it was fine (for my uses) but over the last couple of patches it has been slowing down to the point where it is unplayable - even for sole mining or Level 1 Missions! (yes even with latest updated Everything - Ubuntu, Video Card Drivers, etc)

So I am thinking of going to Windwos (Shock horror) for Eve.

My Question:

Has anyone out there done the same thing and what was the resulting speed of Eve like?
Do you find that the "Lag" you had under Linux is gone?

I found some speed issues (re:lag) were better with an updated driver but it keeps slowing down with each jump/missions/etc so I think it is the Video card driver not freing up memory (or using it differently).

Can someone who has used Linux comment as to whether Eve is faster graphically under Windows?

(NB: I've never played under windows only Linux and so dont have anything to compare it to. I've never been able to get into PvP or more than 10 opponents (as per some missions) due to the speed issues.)

Thanks in advance.
Edit: My main issue it that I get Really Jealous when I see youtube vids of others Eve. I'd never ghet that level of responsivnes in Linux Eve......So I wanted to see if Windows Eve has that sort of gameplay and responsiveness.... Thanks.
