Apple OS X Mountain Lion vs. Linux
Phoronix: Apple OS X Mountain Lion vs. Linux
For those that somehow didn't hear yet, Apple released OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" on Wednesday...
It would be nice with a three-way comparison of Ubuntu 12.10, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and Windows 8.
Now that we have 8 core, 16 gb RAM, and fast SSD, then if one system is a couple percent faster in some benchmark, it's not noticeable and quite unimportant.
So it would be nice with a feature comparison.
As a user of both I can't wait!
What I would love to see is a review of OpenCL performance across various platforms. Systems without GPU acceleration should be tested also to get an idea of how systems really benefit from OpenCL.
Get ready for quite a lot of work setting up Linux on the Retina. Some people in the Arch forums had trouble, GregKH had trouble and he is no ordinary user.
Another terrible article from Phoronix... I'm not even surprised anymore...
The title is extremely misleading! You imply that you have, you know, actual benchmarks. The article is 90% link-spam and *content* that can easily be summarized with "there will benchmarks soon", which is a tweet, not an article.
I don't know why I even bother...
