Sorry for newbie question, I've been using Windows for over 20 years now and simultaneously OS X for last 5 years and I'm shocked the OS X is still working like 5 years ago while I really HAVE to reinstall Windows every 2-4 years.
I know the difference lies in the user usually but note I'm rather an advanced Windows user (I'm way more experienced with it than with OS X for sure), I've always been nice to my Windows (I never got a single virus infection in these 20 years, I try to "install" only portable/standalone software etc.), yet I still feel my Windows is WAY slower a few years after fresh reinstall. I don't feel it AT ALL with OS X.
Is Ubuntu the same?
