I observed that although on a given Linux system the run time for a given WU type varies up to 200% (referring to the fastest task completion), the credits are fixed (200 credits for the regular and 5000 for the long runners). This is true for both types of WUs (long and regular).

For Windows it is the same with the normal Virtualbox WUs.

So, the virtual credits do not represent the invested compute efforts - is there maybe a possibility for improvement some time in the future?

it's an issue that's already been discussed extensively. Briefly, we have chosen the best compromise between what we have managed to put in place
