    Phoronix: macOS 10.12.6 vs. Ubuntu 17.04 Benchmarks

    With having the Apple MacBook Air out for the Razer Blade Stealth Linux testing comparison, I decided to see how the latest releases of macOS Sierra and Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus were competing.

    Hey, thanks for the Mac benchmarks. It was closer than I thought it would be.

      I would be interested in APFS vs. ext4 vs. Btrfs performance benchmark!

        me too - make sure ZFS and the current HFS+ is in there as well

          Me too! AFPS seems to be a major improvement: http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/...th-space-speed

              One of the cool things with macOS is that the UI is very very smooth. Smoother than both Windows 10 and Linux, I believe.
              Hopefully GTK4 on Wayland will get really smooth too.

                It seems to me Mac intentionally sacrifices performance for smoothness, which for their client base I guess is a good choice (but I certainly wouldn't mind if they gave users the option to toggle it). I'd say Windows 10 caught up with Mac's smoothness. Maybe slightly worse, but it also has better performance.

                Is GTK3 on Wayland not smooth? KDE with Wayland has been modestly smooth for me, albeit not perfect, but I imagine GNOME would be significantly better.

                  You have to keep in mind, that OpenGL is somewhat like deprecated on macOS. You only get the full performance with Metal on macOS.

                    What do you mean by smoothness here? One of the things that bothers me with windows on my laptop is how "async" everything feels. Like if I boot and try to search in the start menu it's just stuck, but it sorta kinda feels like it's responsive. To me it seems like there's a long queue of tasks that need to be completed before it will allow search to begin.

                    I'm not sure if this is what you're talking about but to me this smoothness on Windows feels way too much at times. Especially on older laptops.

                    On the same laptop kde neon feels excellent and responsive.
