    Linux apps run faster on Linux, that's a revelation.

    There is an edition called "Windows Pro for Workstations" It is offered as an option from the Windows system Installer, Maybe you should consider trying it.
    It comes preinstalled on my mobile workstation.

    Would you please, please consider including Manjaro Linux in your next tests?

    I wonder if this somehow related to the lots of Snap crap that it has been bundled in.
    Imagine that this is also an LTS release.
    It's probably because it's an unreleased development version. I've noticed that Ubuntu development builds tens to be noticeably slower than the releases.

    Yup, pretty much 100% correct! Also need to point out that in pretty much no way is Windows 10/11 Pro a "server os". If your going to do a "server os" benchmark against windows you have to use one of the Windows Server editions, they are tuned much more to compete with Linux.

    What I would love to see is a server benchmark with web servers (apache, ngix) and v-host comparison. For example how does qemu/kvm, xen, stack up against hyper-v?
    But despite the title, those are workstation benchmarks so comparing against Windows Pro actually makes more sense.

    Maybe I am just confused about the purpose of the review. My initial impression was that a review titled "Windows vs. Linux Benchmarks For AMD Ryzen Server Performance" was intended to be about more commercial grade use cases. If it was intended for a "personal" server instance then yes, fully agreed the test cases make sense... but then the title and pre-amble should have made it clear this was bench marking for home use. "AMD Ryzen" tends to mean the whole family to readers (including Threadripper and EPYC in a lot of cases) so when I read that title I was really excited to see the commercial server setup review as this is actually something near and dear to the company I own.
    Yeah titles can be a bit funky at times without making them too verbose... For the purposes of this testing was focused on Ryzen in budget dedicated server segment. Some may use Ryzen for web hosting but presumably not too concerned about performance or regardless are likely using Linux already

    Yeah likely could be quite time consuming for of limited interest... This particular server already had to be shipped back out for its return, but when next getting Ryzen server may take a look. Though does your request come in general (such as for EPYC) or just in regards to Ryzen server? If it's about EPYC, I can put it on my [long] TODO list due to at least having multiple EPYC servers locally.

    All that said, I most likely had different expectations than the intent of the article.

    I would like to respectfully protest the lack of Debian in this comparison

    How can one benchmark server performance with no server type benchmarks (webserver performance, database performance, etc)
    it's mostly useless benchmarks
    Focusing more on creator-type workloads that use dedicated budget servers for render boxes or similar tasks.... Is there any masses of people I am unaware of still opting to run Windows for an Apache/Nginx and MySQL/MariaDB server these recent years? Especially for the budget aim where it eats into the monthly cost...
