I've read on this page (http://www.whylinuxisbetter.net/) benefits of a Linux system and it says that it doesn't get slow by time (in contrary to Windows), but mine does. Also, I've noticed that after long uptime, it starts to "lag" (e.g. when I press CTRL + T in Firefox to open new tab, I must wait almost a second). I assume that's cause of the uptime, but I'm not sure. Btw, (sorry if it's off-topic), page says that Linux doesn't have to update, but I have to update/patch every 2-3 days and it's irritating, especially if I don't use that programs. My question is: why does this happen and what can I do to make it as fast as it was the day I installed it?

Let's solve your problems:
To sum up, if it's slow, try Lubuntu, if it's semi-slow, try Linux Mint, but if you're an adventurer, try Arch Linux.
Ok, first of all, everything will get slower if you use it badly and linux is not an exception. The cause of it might be some junk applications running in the background.
Now, linux's advantages are:
I am a linux fan but to be honest, if you keep your windows properly, you won't have any issues with it. On this matter, nobody can claim that windows is designed badly and it slows down.

Quoting from the link given.
I haven't seen any concrete reason why Linux is faster in this text, other than try Linux and you'll be surprised.
The person who wrote the text also said Windows has design flaws... well, what are they?
