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?"

They should have run the unix byte benchmark +q3 test or whatever is in use now under these two distro using 5 variables and all with firefox, thunderbird and something like xmms or amarok playing an internet stream (let say a tipical session for anyone)

with gnome eyecandized
with kde
with a light windowsmanager like blackbox or e16
with x11 and an xterm
and on init 3 (without q3 or if it exist a text version, libcaca or something)
