Any benchmark comparing Julia on Windows vs Linux vs OSX?


#1

Is there any benchmark comparing the speed and memory usage of Julia on different Operating Systems?


#2

They should be pretty much the same, except for some things that deals directly with the OS, like files. What’s the reason for the question?


#3

From my own experience, Julia is a bit faster in Linux (Mint) than in Windows (10) regardless of what the code does, I didn’t try OSX though.


#4

Perhaps multithreading?


#5

I don’t think so, may be it’s that Linux is more programmers friendly as they say. Also, the difference is around 25 to 30%, so definitely not multi-threading. Furthermore, I use other languages (e.g. Fortran, C) and observe a similar difference.


#6

I like benchmarks and it can help to choose between operating systems.
