Well Folks; Microsoft have finally put there spin on the new test.
AS we all expected NT prove faster - but not by much.
The article @ microsoft.com is merciless - well I suppose if your gonna play
hard ball with the big boys ....
Still an interesting read none the less.
Be prepared to have the following conclusion made ...
-- CONCLUSION --
While the Linux community has made numerous claims of performance
capabilities and enterprise readiness, there is no proof that Linux can
withstand the demands of the enterprise environment. Windows NT Server 4.0,
on the other hand, has been deployed in a wide variety of environments
ranging from small businesses to the most demanding e-commerce sites on the
Internet. Based on the information provided in this paper, Windows NT Server
4.0 continues to offer customers a significant performance and price
performance advantage over Linux. Finally, Windows NT Server 4.0 gives
customers a server operating system that delivers the features and
functionality needed to build reliable and scalable business solutions.
