If done correctly, benchmarks are a vital tool in measuring the
performance of software and hardware. Having seen and worked with
various benchmarks, this is fact. Its a bit like comparing two
cars. One wouldn't compare a Alpha Romero to a Volkswagen Golf for
speed and looks obviously. You'd find two similar cars to compare.
This, to me anyways, is what Mindcraft seems to be doing, abiet on
a bad road with plenty of potholes where the Golf does better.
The new mindcraft benchmark results are valid for the configuration.
Shows Linux needs some work, in potholing perhaps. It also shows that
some people are scared of linux.
