If you are a software developer, there are at least three additional
criteria for comparing systems:
4. Compile-time diagnostic messages and helpfulness
5. Run-time debugging support
6. Support for software engineering
These can be then factored into the 3 possibilities mentioned above: to compare
the effectiveness of the compiler, OS or the two together.
Speed isn't everything, but it is the easiest to measure.
