    Phoronix: On Track With Our Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 10.04 Tests

    Since early November when we shared that the Phoronix Test Suite would be ported to Windows 7 we have been working it into a state where it's now possible to compare the performance of Windows vs. Linux and also Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenSolaris too. Last month we then shared we were beginning to prepare for a Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS comparison with a great number of tests...

    "This week we then shared earlier this week when launching Phoronix Test Suite "Lyngen" 2.6 Beta 1 that our major operating system comparison was on track to be complete and published by next week."

    This sentence almost broke my brain

      I'm sure that, after you will publish the results, people will ask for more tests (to explain some unexpected results). Will you follow up on this?

          Can't wait to see those results. I'm personally very interested in CPU and hard drive results. ntfs has always been a big trouble for me. killing disks and slow. I didn't used 7 so I hope I'll get some surprises here.
          Of course gpu scores are always great to compare... drivers Linux/Windows tests would be awesome too. perhaps NVIDIA/ATI could also be interested in this comparison.

            Ok, let's start the bets! I think Windows overall is faster, when you benchmark it, due really optimized software. Any thoughts?

              Certainly MSVC and ICC beat gcc most of the time, but I think Windows will still lose pretty badly in everything non-gaming.
              Phoronix tests throughput and Windows 7 aint optimized for that while Linux is basically written as server-os (and doesnt give a damn if everything is unresponsive in favour of better aggregate performance). Would probably be different if a server flavour of Windows would be tested
