PC-BSD and Windows in Computer Lab
Good day to all!
We have decided to use PC-BSD as the official OS for our computer laboratory. Most of the box uses P4 1.7Ghz and some 2.26Ghz processor. We have it dual-boot with windows 98 (so that others can still use the "old" OS they're used to) and it is working fine. (We just did a standard install from the CD)
The problem is, when I open several applications in PC-BSD, it crawls to the point that some stations have stopped or "hangs". Now that would be a problem since we would like to encourage and inform our users that it is best to replace Windows and use PC-BSD instead. Can you guys help us tweak it so that it would run at par or better with Windows?
