The Phoronix Ubuntu Lucid Lynx benchmarks- what is that really?

| I am not against their conclusion whatsoever. 
| What I have a problem with is the way the 
| story is titled. I find it very unfair to 
| title a story this way only to have conducted 
| a series of game tests on the two OS to reach 
| such a conclusion. Would it have been so 
| difficult to title it to reflect the fact that 
| the conclusion is based on a series of tests 
| in a gaming context.
| I would be woefully unfair to Windows 7 should 
| I claim Ubuntu 10.04 has more eye candy than 
| the former without making it known afore-hand 
| that I have Compiz running. It should be made 
| clearly known that there is no way Windows 7 
| can be faster than the Lucid Lynx (yes I am 
| sticking my neck here) in a general purpose 
| context.


Don't fall for improper comparisons. Graphics drivers for the operating systems
are very different and the same goes for games.


OpenSolaris ZFS vs. Linux ext3 RAID5

| Few overarching conclusions can be drawn from the limited results of this
| study. Certainly, there are situations in which the Solaris/RAID-Z
| configuration appears to outperform the Ubuntu/RAID-5 configuration. Many
| questions remain regarding the large discrepancy in CPU usage for small-file
| operations. Likewise, the Ubuntu/RAID-5 configuration appears to perform
| slightly better in certain situations, though not overwhelmingly so. At best,
| under these default configurations, one can say that overall the Solaris
| configuration performs no worse, and indicates that it might perform better
| under live operating conditions. The latter, though, is largely speculation.
