TF2 Takes FOREVER to load, then lags
Is there any chance in fasten that up? It takes like 5 Minutes only for the first loading screen. And then everything lags. I like to play TF2 On Windows, so I now that my PC is able to play all games.

How long does it take to load in Windows?
Maybe a hint at what hardware and OS your running would help people answer your question.

Windows 7 (64 bit),
Selfmade PC (not by me ^^)
6 Core
AMD Radeon HD 6800 series
Direct X 11

It Takes about 1 Minute for Loading on Windows, 5 on Linux :/

what distro and version of linux are you using? and di you install the latest drivers?
it sounds like you are missing the latest GPU drivers, if you are using open source drivers theres you answer.

I find that setting my CPU frequency to performance mode helps quite a bit on load times. Also your hard disk speed can make quite a difference. I have a SSD and it helps quite a bit, though Windows does load considerabily faster. Something else I have noticed is after you load one game, the following games usually load a lot faster. This works even if you load a training session first then join a online game.

TF2 and Steam in general has always felt sluggish on my computer. I suspect it is in part because I am on a crappy cellphone/3G connection for all my gaming, games like Battlefield:bad Company 2 under Windows takes a really long time to finish up SSL-based login sessions. It is a known issue for SSL since it requires a whole slew of setup in order to establish acceptable set of common ciphers etc. <whine>But TF2 is easily one of the slowest-loading games I've come across, I belive all this stupid items, hats and stats tracking requiring constant synchronization with the Steam network is to blame. It really just detracts from the actual gameplay in my opinion.</whine>

The loading time sucks on most people. I had find compariton that showed that TF2 loads faster with wine rather than native...
Also it LAGS FOR ME TOO it uses my CPU 100% and my gpu only 30% (i have an 6450 amd)
