"Unix Beats Windows"--Says Microsoft!
    #4911633 - 11/09/05 12:07 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

What's noteworthy about it is that Microsoft compared Singularity to FreeBSD and Linux as well as Windows/XP--and almost every result shows Windows losing to the two Unix variants..."

Actually if you read the first response on that page, it brings up an interesting point: Windows did not lose "almost every" test. It lost some (OF COURSE, IT'S WINDOWS!) but actually beat the *NIX platforms in several tests.

Check out the ACTUAL report here:

I guess that's why Microsoft itself uses Linux...
It's unofficial: Microsoft bets business on Linux

Hi. I have been also an unix user (linux, netbsd, freebsd...).

It's nice to find unix users here :smile:

I've been using Linux for over a decade but I have never once sat down in front of a bona fide unix box

I fail to see how the OS matters when using an assembly benchmark.
