check out this comparison... it's pretty cool and not so biased

there seems to be an error on the wav to mp3 comparison though... vista beats ubuntu by a sec, the comment on the results is wrong

You can ignore the comments about memory usage as the guy clearly has no clue how the 3 operating systems manage memory, which is a requirement in my opinion on commenting about memory management. The rest of the article is dubious at best

regardless of the tests run I think its a pretty superficial review

well... it's not great -like the video compression... tmpgenc is a lousy encoder to bench with, it's slow as hell-, but i haven't found many reviews/comparisons focused on performance between these systems (and with tests and all)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
