1. Windows can be better or slower than Linux on same hardware,
depends on hardware and existing drivers for hardware for Linux and
Windows. Difference can be up to 30% of performance.

2. You can choose linux distro by your preferrence. If you don't know
any Linux well, then, you will have troubles.

3. file system performance on linux, and performance of linux itsef
depends on lot of factors - journaling, barrier, kernel, and hardware

Thus, the only choice for you is to test it by yourself.
