Benchmarks "We have compared the 32-bit and 64-bit performance of Ubuntu and started a performance comparison of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, but how does the performance of the upcoming Feisty Fawn release compare to that of Fedora 7? In this article we have enclosed benchmarks from Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5. In gaming and desktop benchmarks, which of these Linux distributions is faster?"

Wrong benchmarks

I can't see the point in these benchmarks and the previous ones comparing Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu. The things they're benchmarking are mostly kernel and drivers related, and all the systems compared have those things in common.

They should compare time to boot, time to load each desktop, memory used on a default install, time to open applications,...

What they do would be interesting if they were comparing Linux vs. Solaris vs. *BSD, but Linux vs. Linux is a dumb comparison.
