Benchmarked : Windows Vista vs Windows 7 vs Ubuntu

Recently on the raging articles, reviews and debates on the new home operating system Microsoft released in beta and testable by all. And there is to say that the positive comments out there, although it is still under development. But there is an objective and impartial way to evaluate and make a comparison? They tried, and tuxradar.com comes the reply. Were tested on the same machine, Windows Vista (Ultimate), Windows 7, Ubuntu Ubuntu 8:10 and 9:04 and below are the results more relevant.


Installation Time :



As can be seen from the graph in Ubuntu is a distinct advantage over Vista and Seven. There is however clear that Windows systems perform a benchmark of the system during installation, to recognize the hardware, which occupies a portion of extra minutes. A nice information is the number of "click" that the user during installation, Ubuntu 8:10 and 9:04 respectively, 7 and 8 and 12 are for Vista and Seven will count 14 (obviously it is only a curiosity and is not characteristic to be considered in determining the best system).


Space after installation :





Ubuntu in the lead with only 2.3Gb of space soon after the installation against 8.2Gb Vista (If we consider the 64bit version are even 11.9Gb). It 'true that the Ultimate version of Vista already contains application software but the kids keep us tuxradar.com to clarify that the standard version of Ubuntu also includes a complete suite of programs like Vista. By Seven has not changed much, the space is occupied pressapoco the same.


Starting and switching off the system :





One point in favor for Seven, the newcomer, who is able to boot in less than a minute (even if the 64bit version leaves much to be desired). Following Vista with its 64/65 seconds and queue for the Ubuntu boot that employs a handful of seconds more than the opponents. The test was carried out by starting the timer at the press of the button to turn on the PC.




To switch off is another story. Vista is faster than Ubuntu in terms of fractions of a second. Embarrassing performance in Vista 64bit, and speed not equal to the ignition to Windows 7.


Transferring files :


The results of the test (in milliseconds) of such systems: Windows 7 64bit emerges the winner, followed by 9:04 Ubuntu 64bit and Vista 64bit even if results are all very close. With regard to the systems are not 64bit Ubuntu shows discretamente slower. It 'easy to understand how, under conditions of stress, have a 64bit OS can make a difference.




Recall that Windows 7 is still in beta and will surely substantial changes until the official release, the results of these tests are still approximate. Although this is not to be underestimated because in some areas of the test has received excellent feedback and have time to improve its weaknesses.

Re: Benchmarked : Windows Vista vs Windows 7 vs Ubuntu

Quite interesting, although everyone knows that this varies in practice.
What is the problem with Ubuntu? He is the most appropriate function for this comparison, and everyone know that is one of the heaviest, then probably other distros to do better.

Now, when I see discussions and comments on the performance or efficiency in Windows from Vista, what scares me is how users seem unaware of them or completely ignore the fact that the entire system has DRM encrusted where they pass the data. Any process in Windows has an energy overhead throwing in the trash, playing in garbage time, with no purpose except to ensure that the system works like MS and their corporate friends of the media you want, not the way the user wants in practice.

Re: Benchmarked : Windows Vista vs Windows 7 vs Ubuntu

We are not talking about the Linux world, but the real world (the fight is not between distributions).
Nowadays people use as synonyms:
Linux = Ubuntu (in rare cases: Fedora or openSUSE)*
* = Windows Vista (in rare cases: XP)
* Windows 7 does not count because it has not yet been officially launched

Re: Benchmarked : Windows Vista vs Windows 7 vs Ubuntu

My comment is in this sense, compared to Windows it is done so using all distros.
Why would the same way the staff of the wrong MS get a bad distro of linux benchmark and show the Windows Vista and Win 7 giving a bath in that distro.
I denied the ubuntu, but compared to me was too biased.
Everyone knows that distributions are not exactly equal either linux or unix.
They all have some differences, then a true comparison using a distro is only good for me biased.
Comparison was not used in either a Unix (FreeBSD and NetBSD).
For issue to me that this comparison is biased.
If Win, Mac, Unix and Linux in a comparative oh yes I would find a good.
If Mac and Ubuntu on Mac biased gain would find the same.

If you compare the way would be to place the main linux distros.*
