    I do a lot of ftp uploading on Filezilla, and noticed that when I'm using Linux I can achieve max sustained upload speeds of around 4.24Mbps yet on windows it is only around 3.60 Mbps I am able to get.

    The only thing I've seen about Linux and FTP speeds vs windows was that linux is much better with its native ftp uploading nothing about programs such as filezilla. It seems that if linux being faster scales up well it may be worth building a separate Linux machine just to handle ftp uploading. But since I can only upgrade to a 5mbps upload from my current 4mbps connection by my ISP(for $50 more a month) I can't really benefit from scaling atm.

    Has anyone with really good upload speeds noticed a big difference on linux filezilla vs windows filezilla?

    To answer your question: Yes. As for a separate machine, have you tried dual-booting?

    I've never done dual-booting before, but I'll look into it.

    It's easy, if you need any help let me know. The distro I recommend
    you go with is Xubuntu, it's lighter than Ubuntu with its bloated Unity
    interface, but still easy enough for newcomers to start using it without
    too much tinkering.
