TeraCopy is a 3rd party software.
And if you were listening to your music while trying to copy it to another device, I'm not surprised that this happened.
As for your *nix box, depends upon 1) the hardware, and 2) the configuration your use for your installs. a default install of most *nix will not be strikingly faster than a Windows install.
Nope, I wasn't listening to music while transferring. I know well enough to not use any type of resources whole doing file transfers.
Is far as my linux box goes. I download ubuntu, burned it to a disk as an iso file and did a full install. Linux is the only operating system on this particular machine. 4 gigs of ram and an AMD 2.8 gig processor. I built it three years ago.
