I have a proprietary java applet for uploading file, and the code is exactly the same on Mac and Windows. My question is why mac machine achieve higher upload rate than windows machine. On average I tried it,
Windows XP : 170,000 kbps
Windows 7 : 80,000 kbps
OSX : 210,000 kbps
All tested with the same file 511 MB, and the same ethernet cable (I plug in and out and change it to different machine just to create the most similar environment I can get) Even between windows, seemed like windows xp has faster upload rate than windows 7.
Any idea? Please let me know if I'm asking on the wrong forum, since this is not really programming question.
note: I did try from this post Why would I get slower uploads on a Windows machine than my Mac? does not help..
