Calm down citizen.......... I've got this.
Linux is not the solution. I like XP much more than Vista, but unfortunately had to accept this new, crappy and over-automated pos os after I trashed my old laptop and got a new one. I guess I could revert back after formatting the hard drive but from what I undestand it is not totally compatible with multi-processor systems.
Just recently I found out about automatic disk defragmentation and that explains the rampant hard disk noise/action. If you install lots of programs when you buy the computer plus remove all the bloatware that is forced on the consumer then the system becomes overactive and user input slow as hell.
Excessive hard drive activity is usually down to "Superfetch" service and "Indexing"
What kind of Processor do you have ? as Multi core is not the same as multi cpu!
Xp runs and uses all 4 cores in a quad core system, not sure about 6 or 8 cores though!
