      With the imminent demise of Win XP I have been considering putting Linux on two of my computers and Win 7 or 8 on the other.

      However I haven't been remotely tempted by Leopard.

      Re: Goodbye ADSL

      Looking at the results it seems to me the built in security in each OS may be a factor. ie, Win XP Home has the lowest security rating and gives the highest speed. Win 7 which has the highest security rating gives the lowest, whereas Win XP Pro which is in between security wise, is also in between speedwise.

      It would be interesting Scubbie, to see what the results are running the tests in Safe Mode with Networking, which would take installed software out of the equation..

      I will do this at some stage.

      I've been busy this week and it doesn't look like it will get quiet anytime soon.

      Re: Goodbye ADSL

      Well I have managed to boot up my main Desktop (the one with the AMD3000+ processor) in to Safe mode with Networking this morning. I have run Speedtest multiple times too. Initially with the 1Gbit Ethernet connected, then with the 100mb Ethernet connected.

      The result are below. I have removed the IP Address for my own protection and added a 'zero' where the result was 62.1, for example:

      So things really are not always that clear I guess.

      I think it just shows how inaccurate speedtest.net is. Have you tried the BT speed tester? BT Speed Tester Lite (Beta)

      Maybe someone should start a thread to see the different results from each different build and basically post your computer spec os etc

      I will have to give that a try later. I'm expecting someone to arrive shortly.

      I did like the result from Maidstone though

      I like the Ping on your speedtest sig, it defies the law of physics. A zero ping would mean it was travelling faster than light.

      I am not sure what you mean, did it say you were getting 38Mb when you were actually getting 50Mb. What does it say now? It is a Beta tester and when first released it was wildly inaccurate but has got better as time went by.
