    Phoronix: Windows 10 WSL vs. VirtualBox Ubuntu Performance On An Intel Core i9 7900X

    Going beyond last week's Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X Linux distribution comparison, here are some complementary tests when trying out the latest Windows 10 Insider Build with its Bash/Windows Subsystem for Linux featuring Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Additionally, some comparison results when running Windows 10 with VirtualBox and then an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS guest, all from this i9-7900X high-end desktop.

    Funny to see "mingw-ized" Ubuntu outperform bare metal version of the same Ubuntu in _multiple_ test scenarios. Safe/poor selection of default compiler flags by Canonical?

      I hope WSL never beats Linux. Typo:

        What system here is "mingw-ized"?

          The last time I used Bash for Windows I couldn't use Git, I think the issue was SSL wasn't available. Has that been fixed yet does anyone know?

              It isn't "mingw-ized". The binaries are the same than running on linux, except they run against the windows kernel, like wine in reverse. Keep in mind also that software running in wine is sometimes faster than running on Windows.

                WSL by default uses the real Canonical binaries. This is not recompiling like mingw.

                Microsoft have implemented bits of the Linux kernel ABI so you can run linux binaries on windows.

                    I love Clear Linux's download page. It's a good example of why Linux will never be popular because of the confusing number of varieties
