    Default A Big Operating System Benchmark Comparison

    Phoronix: A Big Operating System Benchmark Comparison

    Next month at Phoronix we intend to conduct a large benchmarking comparison of a few different operating systems. Right now we are looking at Ubuntu, Mac OS X (we will be waiting for 10.6 "Snow Leopard"), NetBSD, PC-BSD, OpenSolaris, and FreeBSD...

    You're gonna run ALL of the tests or just part?

    Even with part of the tests this seems to me like a gigant undertaking. Good luck, you're going to need it

    ALL tests that are compatible with a majority of the OSes being tested.

    Sigh, still no Plan 9.....

    Actually one thing I would kind of like to see is the wine benchmarks ran with the Linux Unified Kernel and see if there is any performance difference using it instead of wine.

    Default Debian testing

    I'd like to see Debian Testing included in the comparison

    Default

    Arch Linux.
    (I appreciated your recent benchmarks)

    Ideally you'd benchmark once Ubuntu 9.10 comes out too, as 9.04 is pretty old hat now

    I wanna see

    OS X 10.6
    Ubuntu 9.10
    Arch (updated)
    Debian Testing (updated)
    OpenSolaris

    Please don't use the shitty intel graphics which would skew results in favour of OS X again.
