    FreeBSD vs Linux or Unity vs KDE?

    FreeBSD vs Linux or Unity vs KDE?

    Here's a comparison with some previous phoronix benchmarks of Desktop Environments.





    Notice the performance difference between KDE and Unity when using the NVidia driver and the similarities between the FreeBSD vs Linux results. I know enough. You just benchmarked Unity vs KDE again. And you prove again that the Nvidia driver performs best with KDE.

        Why Ubuntu and not any other distro?
        I don't care which one, but not Ubuntu, please.

          More precisely, he benchmarked [...] in composited and/(vs) uncomposited environment. LSS, another waste of time.

          He proved nothing. http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...562#post211562

              I find I get smoother performance on Linux using the low-latency version of the kernel.

                That's mainly because it's easy to install and run as a baseline, and say what you will, but it's one of the most (if not the most) popular out there. If he had more time, he'd run other distros, and actually occasionally does, so people can see what difference it makes. I should make it clear that I really don't like Ubuntu (personal taste only - it just doesn't click with me), but I can understand it being used.
                As a result of this, I personally think that the headline was a little misleading; yes, Ubuntu is popular, but Ubuntu and GNU/Linux are not interchangeable terms. There were some other flaws (the whole unity vs kde thing) here too, though that's not normally the case.

                  Brilliant !
                  It's worth an erratum

                  I was going to say something about PAE, in 386 mode you only use 3299MB, whereas with ubuntu pae kernel is used with full 4096MB.
                  So I was curious about freebsd supporting pae, and it does, simply by editing a config file : http://www.freebsd.org/doc/fr/books/...ig-config.html

                  By the way the system config svg is pretty much cropped on the right with Firefox 6 and Chromium 13 in Linux and no scrollbars this time

                      Wow, I haven't seen so much illiteracy in my life ever before. FPS has never depended on anything in your list, given that you use the same hardware platform.
