TCP/IP and UNIX Sockets
This seems like an age-old question, but I'm rather new to it. I found a few other articles; The general consensus seemed to be that UNIX sockets are faster because they have less overhead, or something, but I also heard that Windows 7 is faster with TCP/IP (Like, twice as fast). I'm deciding on using "127.0.0.1" or "localhost" with my MySQL connections, for what it's worth. What do you guys use?
