Comment Re:Surprisingly good article (Score 1) 320

This is one of the least relevant and useful articles I have seen OSNews carry. So it would be nice to have my compiles done 1/6th faster... but not as important as my working environment. Which is the sort of thing Eugenia reviews.

People who are actually working and not just drooling over hardware tend not to care as much about small fluctuations in performance (servers are of course a different matter; though even there things like reliability are much more important). When you're working at a workstation, people can hardly tell the difference until you *double* performance.

"Quantitative" data doesn't necessarily mean "better" data if its not measuring something terribly important.

In any case, whether you think its useful to have tons of benchmarks are not, there are a million sites already doing them. OSNews is doing something different.
