    Phoronix: Ubuntu 13.10 Performance On Intel Core i7 "Haswell"

    The many Intel Haswell Linux benchmarks delivered on Phoronix this month have been from updated Ubuntu 13.04 configurations. However, if you're curious about what the performance is like when upgrading to an Ubuntu 13.10 "Saucy Salamander" daily development snapshot, here are some benchmarks.

    I've seen him criticize Ubuntu when he feels like being serious, so no, he's not a fanboy. I think he's trying to protest something (irrational hate of everything Canonical, which I agree with him about) and I think he's using these forums for his protesting.

    There's not really any difference between trolling to make a point, and trolling for fun. At least not to those you're trolling.

    I happen to agree that there's a lot of irrational hatred/trolling of Canonical on here, but it goes both ways. And there are some very rational reasons to dislike some of Canonicals actions.

    BO$$ is a lot more intelligent than the standard Phoronix troll, though, I'll give him that much.

    But I really don't think its a matter of irrational hate against Canonical... Personally Canonical and Apple are in the same boat for me-- they take groupings of good ideas and put them into shippable products. That's fine, that's needed. But what annoys me is when people say that Apple or Canonical INVENTED it, or that it was THEIR idea... Let's be honest: neither one of them have had ORIGINAL ideas in a long time. AirPlay? its Zero-Conf networking, an idea that was around for a long time before hand. iPhone? Its a phone with a touchscreen... Samsung and Palm have prior art. iPad? Microsoft has prior art. Unity? lets be honest...that's a clone of OS X with an immovable dock.

    These improvements? Probably none of them were directly resulted from Canonical (a canonical employee wrote the patch to bump performance) these are just improvements that came along from Canonical rebasing off of Upstream. Canonical didn't do the work, Upstream did.

    See, personally, I dont want to believe BO$$ is a troll though...because I HAVE had the occasional serious, well thought-out conversation with him. Which knowing that he trolls and is serious on the same account would be disappointing to me. Its easier for me to rationalize him as a fanboy.. at least then I kind of have some hope for him.

    I'm not sure he's really a fanboy either. He definitely trolls, though. I don't think he honestly believes some of what he says, which is why i don't think he's a fanboy, he just likes to stir things up and that's pretty easy to do around here.

    I mean, look at his username, what do you expect? BOSS = he thinks he's more important than the rest of us. And the dollar signs like that scream 12 year old childishness, just like when people use it in M$.

    Aside from the flame war, what's Haswell graphics like for desktop usage? I'm talking KDE+effects+20 applications running+several hours usage. Because I still see slowdown with NVIDIA graphics before long.
