    Phoronix: Soon: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 10.04 vs. Mac OS X 10.6, Oh My!

    Just yesterday we unleashed Phoromatic 1.0 with a horde of improvements to our remote test management system and as part of that introduced the Phoromatic Ubuntu Tracker, which benchmarks Ubuntu on a daily basis looking for performance regressions across multiple systems. Earlier today we then called out for benchmarking requests as what we should track next using our testing and execution framework (so far the likely contender is seeing how Wine's performance is evolving on a per-commit basis, but let us know what you think). Now to end out this week of announcements I have something else to share that's particularly interesting...

        mmm.... hope at least the propertary drivers are compared to each other... opensource against closed would be nice to read, but is not very representive.

        I'm especially interested in a setup with a nvidia gpu which imho is best comparable to both win and mac. (its confirmed that the driver base is largely the same).

          Ubuntu 10.04 won't be released very soon. so we'll see Alpha/beta version with debugging enabled?

            Ubuntu doesn't really have debugging code enabled even in the development process AFAIK

              Last time I looked at some Ubuntu version and it seems such options were enabled:

                  Can't wait for the results! If Windows wins I'l be greatly puzzled.

                    PTS coming to Windows.

                    When will companies learn? If you ignore Linux, it will leave a huge niche open to direct competition which will then come around and bite you in the butt. Happened with GIMP, happened with Inkscape, and now it's happening with Phoronix Test Suite.

                    Blow us off at your peril.

                      yay \m/

                      Having windows as a benchmark option would be great because windows proprietary drivers receive the most attention from vendors.

                      Can't wait for the Windows vs Linux tests

                        How do benchmark the slow window management, slow application startup and shitty multitasking? Please include some tests, that are not pure hardware/driver related

                          I have particular query for this test:
                          Read/write raw hdd
                          I/O over file system
                          AND the more important for me:
                          Copy of 10x1G file on the same hdd and same partition. (no on ssd for keep be in common hardware)
                          I thinks you will see great difference between all the Os.

                            +1, for exemple you can track application start up of Qt/KDE application with as special soft, open and close lot of windows for track windows manager performance.

                              Ok, thanks Michael, so it probably doesn't matter too much if release is final or not, because it seems debugging is turned on even on final releases.
