Why would you choose one over the other? Is one better on a particular OS?

I'm just trying to understand what goes into making the decision between the two.

looking at build bot glibc is linux only, mingw is for windows. mingw gives a significant speed boost for windows (only for the CPU) over the normal builds (it can half render times). however it is unstable

There's definitely a glibc build for windows. I have it.

Could you link me to the information you found? I want to read up on this a little more, but google doesn't seem give me anything.
