Vista, Windows 7, Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 boot speed comparison
The Great Boot Race
Hot on the heels of the final release of the Karmic Koala, we've put together a video montage of 64-bit versions of Microsoft's Vista and Windows 7 operating systems booting alongside Canonical's Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10. Watch all four at once and see which one wins!
Each operating system has been freshly installed and features exactly the same hardware configuration. Auto-login is enabled, and each will launch Firefox which will then proceed to load our homepage.
We've taken an in-depth look at Ubuntu 9.10 in our latest podcast, and we've discussed Windows versus Linux several times before.
