    Phoronix: Windows 10 vs. Windows WSL vs. Linux - Ubuntu / openSUSE / Debian / Clear Linux

    With Debian having been added to the Microsoft Store earlier this month for running Debian 9 on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) plus in wanting to do some fresh updates prior to Microsoft shipping their Spring Creators Update, here are some fresh benchmarks of various Linux distributions and their raw performance, the current major Linux distributions available on WSL, and then also the native Windows 10 performance in the various supported tests.

    That's a lot of mixed results, but it does seem that Clear Linux is either on par with or better than Windows in most cases.

      CacheBench read is so surprising.

        ā€œ10Gā€ is probably a typo? And ā€œ66.94ā€ ?

          openSUSE 42.3 has packages PHP 5/7, similar to most distributions have Python2/3 or Java 7/8

            Very nice. Thanks for including Debian.

            It's quite interesting to see Debian 9.4 being second only to Clear Linux on lots of those tests. I honestly wasn't expecting it.

              Yesterday I found out that most of the performance hit WSL has comes from Windows Defender not liking what WSL does.

              Did you have Windows Defender on or off in those tests?

              I noticed Ubuntu on WSL was way too slow here, but disabling Windows Defender made it perform much better.

                But would you want to turn it off?

                  You can always add an exception for the WSL path, %userprofile%\appdata\local\lxss

                    Unfortunately, that doesn't work, according to several users.
