Linux vs. MacOSX vs. WinXP for estatistical computing
Posted by isilanes on May 12, 2006
Reading FayerWayer, I found a reference to a comparison between these three OSs made by someone called Jasjeet Sekhon. As with any benchmark, it is only valid for the context it applies to, so take it cautiously, and read the original story for more details.
The benchmarks used by Jasjeet Sekhon are two calculations with some software called R Project for Statistical Computing. The results are good for Linux (of course), and bad for… OSX!! Yes, madams et monsieurs, even Windows beats MacOSX.
