A side by side comparison of Windows 7 and Alt Linux KDE. Using this low specs computer, you may guess the results, do you?

Read the full article to find out the details.

What was tested: Simple everyday operations were used as performance tests:

* Opening of graphic file, map - size 80*80cm, file size 5,2Mb * Opening of document, file size 560Kb, 198 pages * Music file playback, artist Moby, track in my heart.wma * Movie file playback. 2 movies were selected for tests 1. Our Russia: Eggs of Fate (avi), and 2. The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (avi). Also note: Eggs has better quality, but file size is almost equal for both movies: 700Mb. Probably, new coding methods are used in Eggs, but I am not sure. But playback went differently for those files.

Comment. All these files were opened from fileserver in the network (working on Samba). Both Linux and Windows worked in their default graphical environments after installation.
