Benchmarks Phoronix, known for their various speed tests and reviews, compared the latest in Ubuntu and what, until recently, used to be the lastest in Mac OS X with 29 different benchmarking tests. Some of the results were rather interesting.

Its been awhile since seriously posting on osnews but this requires a response. In my professional opinion over the internet, you sir have no clue what you are talking about.

Hmmm lets see what does Ubuntu develop? How about notify-osd, the new growl-like notification system which is controversial but very pretty? How about usplash, the userspace bootsplash (soon to be replaced however). How about upstart, the new event based init replacement good enough for Fedora AND Debian to both adopt in the default installs? Granted, it is (IMO) crap, but how about the python ORM storm? Do you even know what an ORM is used for?

How about patches.ubuntu.com? Yeah they've written a good bit of code. How many patches you ask?

Seriously how can you say, "Whilst the foundation of Ubuntu is shaky..." when it is based off of Debian? Are you saying there is a lack of Debian developers or packages? Sure a lot of them are not friendly to people like yourself but they aren't ghosts. Frankly, you are talking out of your fourth point of contact. Call your proctologist and ask him to find your head, then take a shower and come back to play.

If you get the "deb/rpm" from a reputable source like oh your distribution's package repository it will be GPG signed. Yes my friend, that is more secure than a shell script.

Really I shouldn't have bitten as you obviously troll. The only argument I totally agree with you on is QT/Cocoa vs GTK. GTK is crap compared to either of those but is being worked on. Until next time kids...
