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

for me personally i couldn't care less about most of that. I almost never reboot my computers and when i do i really don't care about the boot time..... if it takes 2 minutes....... so what.... it's not like i have to reboot every time i install something like you have to do in windows so often.

and ...... well....... the memory........... linux uses all your memory all the time.............. what does your memory do if you aren't using it?

i am a hell of a lot more concerned with with how fast an app r uns after the system has booted then i am with boot time. I would rather have a slow boot time and a secure fast user environment myself.
