Update: I’ve tried to post my results back to Seth’s thread but it won’t work, so I’ve emailed him instead.
In response to my article comparing Yum and Apt (at least I think it was my article, might have been someone else’s I guess), lead developer of Yum, Seth Vidal, wrote his own test script and performed some Yum benchmarks of his own.
Always a fun comparison. It’d be even more fun if any of the numbers seemed accurate.
His ran his test and concluded that Yum is “pretty good” and offers for others to run the test and post their results. So I did, on the same computer I used for the my article. I also compared the results to Ubuntu, as that’s really what my article was talking about 🙂
So what did I find?
