Default phoronix: Is Arch faster than Ubuntu?

Showing boot-up time and other more noticeable waits would be a much
better comparison; I think the benchmarks are not why people think
Arch feels faster.

I have never read any test on Phoronix that made any sense. I don't
trust anything they say.

Right but the reason I think this is interesting is that the data
shows it is "feels faster" not "is faster".

This is not surprising at all. Especially once I saw it wasn the x86_64
ports that were being compared. With x86_64 we are not optimizing any
more than any other x86_64 distribution. In fact, our CFLAGS and
LDFLAGS are quite conservative so we may be optimizing less.


Even our "i686" optimization is not news-worthy these days. Fedora is
i686 optimized. Although I think Ubunutu is still i486 (glibc killed
off i386 support). So there may have been a difference on the 32 bit
install.


Optimization is not a selling point for Arch anymore.
