Windows7 Ultimate By Microsoft
Ubuntu9.1 Karmic By Canonical
Kernel generic 2.6.31-14 Gnome 2.28.1
OpenSUSE11.2 By Novell
Kernel desktop KDE 4.3.1

The latest versions of these systems until the time of making this comparison

I - the desktop:
That is up to the discretion of the user, following image shows the default skin for systems

For me it was arranged as follows:


II – Installation Time :

Has been deleted time that results from the slow introduction of user data, and the following figures are only taken to the system to be installed.

And the Arrangement is as follows:

Ubuntu 9.10

III - booting time:

This time has been divided into two parts:
I : from boot leader to password require

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

II: Add to first time the time required to Active Desktop - of course, we removed the time it takes to enter the password -

Windows 7
Ubuntu 9.10

IV - the time of shutdown:
Time is measured from the moment you give the order to shut down and until the completion of this process.

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

V. - Time to transfer files:
Which I referred to before submitting the results to you is the properties of the folder in which to experiment by

Folder Size: 1.01GB
Folder that contains 125
Contains 4,967 file
File sizes from 1KB to 81.6MB

Was conducted two tests:
I: From Partition to Partition of the system (in Windows7 disk C, In Toziotai GNU / Linux has been transportation to / home)

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

II: From Partition to Flash Memory and vice versa.

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

VI - Energy:
Were measured in the time of discharge the battery note had been working on the same applications on different systems
And been taken into account the stage of fire for each system, that is:
Windows7 has been shut down at 7%
And Ubuntu at 1.3%
OpenSUSE and at 6%
The previous options are the default options and have been adopted without change

Ubuntu 9.10
Windows 7

The final sentence should I leave it to you
