I got a HP laptop and I dual-boot Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Kali Linux 64-bit.I installed Minecraft and Counter Strike to see how they are running and both of them were lagging a lot.I couldn't understand why,because the requirements are met for sure and I installed Windows a week ago...My specifications are: -processor: AMD quad-core; 1.5 GHz; cache L2 512 kb -RAM Memory:4 Gb; DDR3; 1600 MHz; -Hard disk:500 Gb; 5400 rpm; SATA -Video Card:integrated; AMD Radeon Mobility; HD 8330; DirectX 11 support Also,three months ago I got ubuntu 14.04 installed and Minecraft was running smoothly (most of the time),I don't understand why it lags so much now,so if anyone knows what's the problem,please tell me.Thanks!

    Minecraft isn't exactly a "game with low system requirements". ;)

HP and Canonicle work together so UBUNTU probably has better, if not proprietary display drivers than KALI.
Your AMD Radeon Mobility; HD 8330 uses shared system memory. If Minecraft is multi-threaded, it is only in the most recent snaphots. For your Win 7: Defrag with a performance defrag program. Look into shutting down un-needed services (alacrity is a program that will do this). Use the latest video-drivers. See if latest Minecraft does use multi-thread so you can use all your cores.
