Ubuntu 11.10 vs. Mac OS X 10.7.2 Performance

Filed under
Mac
Ubuntu

After delivering benchmarks last week that were comparing the Intel Sandy Bridge performance of Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" vs. Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" when it came to the Sandy Bridge OpenGL graphics performance, here's a comparative look at the performance of Ubuntu 11.10 against Mac OS X 10.7.2 from the Intel Sandy Bridge-based Mac.

The same system is being used as last weeks article: the mid-2011 Apple Mac Mini with an Intel Sandy Bridge processor. This is the only system that could be used for the Mac OS X 10.7.2 vs. Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit comparison due to hardware availability; the older Apple test systems at Phoronix no longer is supported well by Mac OS X 10.7 Lion final. The last benchmarks of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion on Phoronix were the early developer preview benchmarks.
