faster core?

for users who don't use gnome/kde or other desktop environments, would they like FC5?

i found some distributions like ubuntu 5.10 felt slower in everyday use like browsing, file operations and so on.

currently i use mandriva (with xfce) as it seems to have a nippy core and things seem to happen faster. big files get copied quicker, browsing with firefox seems snanppier.

i wonder if anyone does benchmarking of core things like kernel, fs, network tasks for various distros? this data would be much more useful for people not interested in desktop environments.
