I am pretty new to all the mining stuff and the technical aspects pertaining to this too. So I have a few doubts to be clarified. Please help!
1. Is Linux OS based mining faster than that in Windows OS?
Because I think after seeing the posts on the benchmarks discussions Linux OS based mining setups appeared to give much higher level of Mh/s compared
to similar setup in Windows. Is it true or just faulty observation on my part?
2. My setup : Windows 10/ GeForce NVIDIA GTX 850M 8GB.
And the hash rate I get is 2Mh/s at maximum, while lower level GPUs seem to be getting 20Mh/s easily....Am I doing something wrong?
3. Does anyone recommend cloud service mining? Has anyone tried this option? The few internet discussion I came across on this topic were discussing about AWS and its just very slightly profitable.
