    I think there are still way more Octave users than Julia. I occasionally use Octave, but not enough to be worth investing time in learning something else. The only other sort of comparable thing I find myself using is numpy.

    I'm not arguing against Julia benchmarks - particularly if it's good at scaling to multiple cores. I'm just saying that Octave is hardly as irrelevant as you seem to imply.

    I don't know if you ever read newspapers, but they actually summarize the article instead of focusing on enticement. The main problem with newspaper headlines is/was they would tend to be too terse, sometimes making them a bit ambiguous or confusing. But, within the first paragraph, if not the first sentence of the article, that confusion would usually be dispelled.

    Another way to think about it is that the reason click-bait earned a special term for itself is because it deviated from the norm. If click-baity headlines were truly the norm, then people would just call them headlines and there'd be no expectation they would do anything other than entice.

    I agree, and that was the reason I didn't read the article. It was clear to me that Clear Linux would be the title, the title would have been waay better making this explicit.
    Still doesn't make it clickbait though.

    It is incredible how Ubuntu can make Debian worst...

    My comment was in general that I don’t see a point in doing Octave benchmarks at all, as someone who cares even just a litte bit about performance in scientific computing would never consider Octave in the first place. Even if you run Octave on a dual Xeon machine with terabytes of RAM, Julia on a Raspberry Pie will burn it to the ground with ease. Here are some numbers to compare: https://julialang.org/benchmarks

    Would really be rad if you’re interested in including Julia benchmarks! Here are some, for example:

    A collection of Julia benchmarks available for CI tracking from the JuliaLang/julia repository - JuliaCI/BaseBenchmarks.jl

    A benchmarking framework for the Julia language. Contribute to JuliaCI/BenchmarkTools.jl development by creating an account on GitHub.

    Well Phoronix do benches, so there is a lot of these this VS that expected. So, i wouldn't be surprised if even "Dr. Click-Bait VS Spider-Man" happens here
