    Default Eight-Way BSD & Linux OS Comparison

    Phoronix: Eight-Way BSD & Linux OS Comparison

    Being benchmarked today at Phoronix is a comparison of eight different BSD and Linux operating systems. The contenders for this performance roundabout include PC-BSD 9.1, DragonFlyBSD 3.4.1, Ubuntu 13.04, Linux Mint 15 RC, CentOS 6.4, Fedora 18, Mageia 3, and openSUSE 12.3. Which of these operating systems are the fastest and slowest for a variety of different workloads? Read on to find out.

    Why are you still using Nexuiz? It's an obsolete version of the same engine as Xonotic, and is consistently outperformed by Xonotic. Not very interesting.

    Isn't it about time for you to get banned for being a stupid motherfucker?
    Seems to me that compared to other similar AGED distros, it won some, and lost some. Overall, about the same. THAT IS PERFORMANCE ONLY, which is far from the only consideration when selecting a distro. You know that some people choose their distribution philosophically, don't you? Their (canonical's) lack of upstream contribution is a great reason to avoid them. Also their crappy UI, and other attempts to break compatibility with GNU/Linux.

    News flash: Benchmarks are NOT INTERESTING. PERIOD.

    This benchmark was quite interesting to me. Particularly the anomalous Mageia position. Why would setting the scheduler to performance lower the performance, as opposed to ondemand? That doesn't make much sense to me...

    It finished basically identically to all the other linux distros - which makes sense, because they're all using the same software under the hood.

    Anyway, i thought you were trolling for MS now? Weren't you just going on about how much linux sucked? Now you're back to being pro-Ubuntu again, i guess?

    How unfortunate that centos was not included in the apache benchmark, seeing as how centos is an extremely popular web platform on the internet. Was centos excluded so that BSD could secure a win in this category?

    Default CentOS fastest on Nexuiz

    Was surprised to see CentOS be fastest on Nexuiz, considering it focus on server and stability.

    Too bad DragonFly BSD was missing from many tests...

    @Michael: Instead of testing both Ubuntu and Linux Mint - which are practically identical library-wise, I'd have rather seen results for Debian. I'd be interesting whether the good overall performance comes from the mother distribution, or is home made.

    +1

    For a reasonable comparison, Debian testing could be used, wich is the recommended for desktop/non-critical use.

    Debian loves you, why don't love Debian Michael? XD
