    Hi Michael, yes, I understand that and I still think my analogy applies. Putting two fundamentally incomparable numbers on the same graph is not very useful.

    IMHO it would be far more accurate to compare the desktops which don't redirect fullscreen on one graph, and those that do on another. Otherwise articles like this invite simplistic conclusions such as "Unity and KDE are slow", when this may not be necessarily true (though of course, maybe it is!).

    BTW.. please take this as constructive criticism.. I'm glad Phoronix exists to produce these kinds of benchmarks!

      Michael said once he ca adjust default if there are options that allows to do this easily. There's such option in KDE.

Your analogy would apply if this article was just exclusively looking at comparing window manager settings but what's being tested here is the stock desktop.
        I didn't know it's so hard to make one test extra with modified option.

          I save extra/non-default tests for extra articles.

            How about people make suggestions on improvements?

            I have a good idea. How about everyone makes suggestions on improvements and then post your results using the same testing tools that phoronix provides.

              omg no gnome (shell)

              Why the hell did you not test gnome-shell its now completly useless for me and surely 50% of the linux users that use linux as desktop system. Unity is as far as I know, only used under ubuntu, and maybe less ubuntu users use gnome-shell than unity but on other distries 10 times more users use gnome (shell) than unity so if you test kde against unity why not gnome.

              Because Ubuntu goes a few years a retarded solo.

                There are GNOME Shell benchmarks if you read the entire article...

                    any cinnamon data?

                    Is there any data for power consumption with Cinnamon?

                      Should be pretty much the same as gnome-shell.
