I have just started using my new Linux machine which has a Dual AMD Opteron (2.2 GHz) with Serial ATA system with a 64-bit linux platform.  I have 16GB of RAM installed. I am using stata 9. This has solved my problem of opening large files however on running identical do files on a 32-bit windows pc (which is able to address the 1.5GB of RAM) with stata 8 the linux machine runs the do file slower. For example 19 mins (linux machine) 12 mins (windows machine).
Is this expected? If not are there some tweaks I should be tweaking to improve the speed of my linux machine.
