I think this might be the most annoying question for the pros here, but I'd really like to know which version is better if I'd like a super fast start-up and processing speed. I know it rather depends on the CPU, but the OS is important too. I dont really care for the long term support since I normally re-install my system once a year. I'd just like to choose a stable and fast OS and I have been reading all sorts of things, but no one has given a proper answer to my question/doubt.

Thanks a lot.

UPDATE: if someone has already asked this, then please merge this with that post and close it. Thanks.
