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?"

Important metrics for me

Benchmarking for me should focus on
Time to fire up a browser window (epihpany)
Time to fire up a text editor (gedit sucks in this arena, lefpad isn't to shabby though)
Time to fire up a media player or document viewer
"Feel" (small things lika latency between mouse click, visual feedback and actual effect feedback)
