What bothers me on these tests, is that i dont know the configuration in general. I assume out of the box install. But does that mean that your running the tests with Windows Defender (Security Essentials , or whatever its called now), vs the ubuntu with no AV services? Did they dissable Corta and all the telemetry nonsense? Probably not. When it comes down to it, when comparing you could get stuck in the downward spiral of what should and shouldnt be enabled on both sides.... But in the end, i dont get a good comparison. You dont expect the average person to disable cortana or whatever, but a person who is debating on running a linux distro vs windows would. So, who is this comparison \ configuration data targeted too?
I would really love to see these two tests run by a person who has configured the system to a normal use case. Like a software dev with identical enviroments 1 being windows and other being zbuntu or whatever. With stupid stuff disabled or additional needed tools enabled. ... i.e i would never run windows without Windows Defender running, but would you run a linux distro without one in a professional enviroment?
