    True, especially when it comes to malware, software with zero value of benefit and the largest number of PEBKAC users in the world.

      Phoronix: Windows 8 Outperforming Ubuntu Linux With Intel OpenGL Graphics

      In our benchmarks of Microsoft Windows 8, we have found that Intel's Windows OpenGL driver is generally superior to that of their open-source Linux graphics driver. Some progress has been made, but in today's testing of an ASUS Ultrabook bearing an Ivy Bridge processor, Linux has a ways to go for some games in matching the Windows binary performance and features.

      Thanks for the article, Michael.
      This isn't surprising. I'd read that there was a massive driver refactorization (at a minimum, though, IIRC, it talked of an actual rewrite but that seems a bit much) for W8. W8 has really improved performance from what little I've read of it. Even browsers are faster on it than they were on W7.
      Regardless, an amazing effort from the Intel team. I'm looking forward to further features being exposed and performance optimizations.
      I'd be curious about how Gnome Shell would perform, and I'd assume that even lighter WMs like Openbox, Awesome, Enlightenment, or Xfwm would be even faster. Perhaps fast enough to bridge the gap?
      Maybe running these benchmarks from a VT would show how much absolute overhead ANY environment adds?

        I sincerely hope that that was meant to be a joke, because CoD is about *THE* shittiest FPS game series out there, at the very least pick something like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or you know something else actually good such as The Witcher, or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or even great old games like SiN, Advent Rising, and Heavy Gear.

          No! That game is being still ported together with the best windows game ever!! DONKEY.BAS

          Recall that the newest linux game available now is from 1731. I'm surprised that windows fanboys don't know those well-known facts.

            Unity!

            Not hard to "outperforme" Ubuntu!

            It's well kown that unity (compiz) is a performance break!

            If you dont belive it, test it e.g. with heaven benchmark

            Ubuntu 12.10 (Unity): 30 MAX-FPS
            Fedora 18 (Gnome 3): 52 MAX-FPS
            Gentoo (KDE 4.10): 54 MAX-FPS

              Yeah, only linux user could catch a virus in windows I'm using windows without antivirus for more than 5 years now, and never saw any virus... And no one even cares to make viruses for linux... Even mac users have some fun with trojans, you must be so sad, arent you ?
              There is no point in runing only benchmarks, i know, its sad, that all you can do in linux is watching benchmarks, but in windows we have actual games
              Yeah, there is thousands of thousands great games for windows, i cant write all of them here, but you got the idea, none of them are available for linux.
              Yeah, AOL still looks better than any shitty linux DE, plus win8 only has idea of AOL, its looks are very very very good, with best graphics, every element matches other elements, and everything works perfect, so shame on you, buy glasses... Thats one of the big problems of linux, all DEs looks so terrible, and themes for it looks even more horrible, developers must have been very hiiiiiiigh when they made it

                So, this was done with unity's/compiz' compositing. There shouldn't be a noticeable difference for the open source drivers between running opengl on a composited desktop vs on a non-composited one anymore, right?
                Nope, the title is correct because it didn't tested drivers, but the entire operating system (not just the kernel) on stock settings, so yes, with compositing enabled.

                  Perhaps you can't list them all but calling CoD great is a travesty. It's like saying Deus Ex: Invisible War is good, I'm simply saying you need to use titles that actually are good not ones that are just plain awful and thus not a loss to not have :P

                    So the vast majority of windows users must have used Linux before windows then? and have you ever pondered the reason why you have never seen any viruses is because you don't have any antivirus software to alert you? your system is probably riddled with them, you just don't know it.
                    So you admit that your os from the future looks like one from the past, one designed for kids, how strange, why did microsoft copy someone elses idea? can they not come up with any ideas of their own? and these elements that you speak of? do they include both metro and the classic desktop? because they don't look like they match to me, they look like two completely different UI's.

                      3) In fact, they did, because i tried and i know, so linux now is trash in general, not just ubuntu
                      Yeah, im not much of a linux fan, and i dont even care about beos or solaris, cause windows rulezz desktop pc's And once more, yes, there isnt much in this site that is interesting, like some people like to read jokes on internet, i like to read some linux forums, those are full of trolls and so funny, i fell like im from the future with my windows os, reading all that news from 1990's
                      2/10

                      Made me really appreciate intellectual capabilities of my co-workers...

                      Or maybe even 3/10 - for a moment I though my dog is genius
