I want to install Puppy Linux on an old laptop that is otherwise useless. Will uninstalling Windows make it faster?

Asked by yuengling1829 (27 points ) December 28th, 2012

It’s an old Dell with 256.0 MB RAM and it’s been sitting around unused for a few years. I’m getting ready to install Linux, (I’m not really sure what I’m doing but I’m figuring it out. So far I’ve just been booting Linux from a disk, and it’s much faster than windows.) My question is this: if I get rid of Windows completely, will it make the computer faster, or will it not effect the speed when Linux is running? I really have no need for Windows on this machine…
