New Benchmarks Of OpenSolaris, BSD & Linux

Filed under

Earlier today we put out benchmarks of ZFS on Linux via a native kernel module that will be made publicly available to bring this Sun/Oracle file-system over to more Linux users. Now though as a bonus we happen to have new benchmarks of the latest OpenSolaris-based distributions, including OpenSolaris, OpenIndiana, and Augustiner-Schweinshaxe, compared to PC-BSD, Fedora, and Ubuntu.

This testing is quite simple as we just ran a set of tests under six different operating systems: Ubuntu 10.10, Fedora 14, PC-BSD 8.1, OpenSolaris b134, OpenIndiana b147, and Augustiner-Schweinshaxe. Testing was done on a system with an Intel Core i5 750 CPU, ECS P55H-A motherboard, 4GB of DDR3 system memory, a 500GB Western Digital Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive, and an ATI Radeon HD 5770 series graphics card.

Ubuntu 16.10: Convergence is in a holding pattern; consistency’s here instead

There's plenty in Ubuntu 16.10 that makes it worth the upgrade, though nothing about Canonical's latest release is groundbreaking. This less experimental but worthwhile update continues to refine and bug-fix what at this point has become the fastest, stablest, least-likely-to-completely-change-between-point releases of the three major "modern" Linux desktops. Still, while the Unity 7.5 desktop offers stability and speed today, it's not long for this world. Ubuntu 16.10 is the seventh release since the fabled Unity 8 and its accompanying Mir display server were announced. Yet in Ubuntu 16.10, there's still no Unity 8 nor Mir. Read more
