Raw difference: 5.2356X faster. 4.7% fewer packages to process, so 4.9899X faster net, not allowing for faster CPU. Assuming CPU speed has direct effect on throughput, which I seriously doubt, 3.74241X faster.
    @mrmazda:

    Well, that is interesting . . . my TW install is in a newer HDD . . . along with a Gecko rolling . . . and a Manjaro. I might have another Gecko in the newest SSD, along with Sid . . . they do appear to "zip" thru package upgrades compared to the TW side of things. Problem is the Gecko & Sid seem to reject the "time" modifier, so I can't seem to show "real time" used in comparison.

    Perhaps one "solution" would be to move the "/" for TW over to the SSD and leave the user stuff over in the HDD . . . prolly cheaper going that way than buying a new cpu to just be able to run package upgrades for one OS . . . the one with the huuuugggeee numbers of packages to upgrade every 5 minutes . . . ????

    time is not a modifier. It's a command that needs to be installed in order to be run:
    Code:
    > which time
    /usr/bin/time
    > rpm -qi time
    Name        : time
    Version     : 1.9
    Release     : 1.15
    Architecture: x86_64
    Install Date: Sat Jan  1 19:19:47 2022
    ...
    Summary     : Run Programs And Summarize System Resource Usage
    Description :
    The "time" command runs another program, then displays information
    about the resources used by that program, collected by the system
    while the program was running.

    Ah . . . so TW comes with it already installed?? Because it works in TW and I never went out of my way to install it . . . unless zypper made the decision.

    So, in the other SUSE based systems I can run "sudo zypper in time"???? And/or "apt" or "pacman" to run the same install of app/package "time"???
