Ok I set up Boinc for Einstein@home about a weak ago on my backup pc witch is a old 900mhz cpu 512mb ram 30gig hdd on 24/7 running winXP pro sp3. If i where to switch my os to Linux would that speed up the work load at all and if so witch version of Linux would be quickest?

By now the Linux and Windows apps should have almost identical performance, so I doubt that migrating to Linux will speed up things significantly on that host.
