    Maybe you're just a troll but you can see many people talking like that on the internet.

    It baffles me like people can speak about vendor lock-in as if it was a good thing. Or when people joke that "you can't play games on a mac". THAT'S A BAD THING.
    The implication is that if you want to play a game, you first have to give money to Microsoft. If you don't know about Microsoft, read that: http://www.groklaw.net/staticpages/i...05010107100653

    No, the level of linux gaming right now is Half Life 2 Deathmatch, Counter Strike Source, Serious Sam 3, etc. Yes, they are not the most recent games, but it's said that valve is in the process of porting all their games. Yes, valve is not the gaming industry but if their steam box is successful we'll get much linux compatibility for games "for free".

    If it is "trash", why does it basically run the internet? How many linux computers did you use while posting this post to this forum?

    You should go to comp.os.linux.advocacy. If you want to troll and interact with other trolls you'd fit in there better. https://groups.google.com/forum/?fro...linux.advocacy

    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.
    It did test only fps on only the intel driver. The intel driver is the only one still using mesa classic. The results might not transfer to gallium drivers. It certainly does not transfer to proprietary drivers.

      Hmm, that's why I was unsure if he was serious. Could be he is misinformed, and therefore serious.

        mix them together,
        and see that you will get much more FPS using something like OpenBox.

        And now you have beaten Windows.
        And you don't have proper desktop with OpenBox, LXDE is a joke.

          Yeah, of course, because any malware will wave a flag in your face that it is present on your system. But anyways, I couldn't care less if you machine acts as spambot, presents you personal information to the world (think twice about online banking), host child porn or whatever.
          You know why? Because I can be sure that mine doesn't.

            And this is relevant for a driver benchmark in which way exactly?

              Because you can also uninstall many Windows programs, "lighten it" and yield better performance.

                Not necessarily. Trust me, if you use your computer carefully, use up-to-date browser and are wary of crack / porn sites, you can live without antivirus. Even on Windows.

                Not to dispute the fact that Windows is flawed by design though.

                  Yes you will. Less programs / shared libraries in memory -> less CPU time to manage them.

                  You can also try disabling services which kills those svchosts.

                    Bullshit. You don't even know how to use Windows so shut up.

                      In Windows 8 Microsoft has drastically trimmed the number of svchost processes running in the background. I remember how setting up a fresh copy of Vista or 7 would result in 5 - 8 such processes running concurrently. In a copy of Windows 8 i set up recently I only have 4 svchost.exe processes running. That said Windows 8 seems to be quite aggresive in suspending applications to save on resource consumption: i left a Reader app open for a few minutes without touching it and Task Manager reported that Windows had suspended it already. :s

                      Still I wish Microsoft would put a little more effort into kernel-side improvements instead of just making simple fixes. Sure most of their functionality is now dependent on the windows shell which has been improved compared to the resource guzzler it was in Windows vista and 7 but would it kill them to put more effort on the NT kernel...
