    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.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't work, according to several users.
    That's because `
    %userprofile%\appdata\local\lxss` is the path to the old, legacy, unsupported Ubuntu instance we installed in the beta versions of WSL. Distros from the store are installed elsewhere.

    And no, we do not recommend disabling anti-malware, nor excluding your distro folder(s). We are working various aspects of disk IO perf and have improvements being investigated and/or fixes queued up for implementation over the next few Windows releases. Bear with us.

    After reading win 10 Microsoft's new terms of service I cannot imagine myself using win 10 much longer.

    I'd love to have a explanation for this, seems very odd.
    It concerns me that it's for all Linux distributions.

    Yes. It's crapware.

    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.

    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.
