Due to the suggestions of the overwhelming majority (see ~3 people), I am making a thread about muh performance!
I decided to run Windows Subsystem for Linux against my build server and my daily workstation. The WSL and Fedora workstations are on the same computer, but the operating systems are installed on different hard drives (both Intel SSD).
The Ubuntu server (admindevlabs) is running on SAS SSD with two Xeon processors. They are OLD, though, so I was more curious to see how WSL compared against Fedora. I am going to try other operating systems when I find time.
This is compiling NodeJS from source.
WSL (8700k) on the left, Ubuntu server (x2 Xeon) on the right
Dual Xeon 5560 (I think) in the server, i7 8700k in the workstation.
I am going to do the Linux kernel later and see what the results are. Node is C++ so I’m curious to see if C has a bigger difference.
Any ideas? You guys want to show off your specs too? Feel free
