Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu With the release of Ubuntu 8.10 only a few days away, Phoronix decided to take a look at the performance figures over the past releases - from Ubuntu 7.04 to Ubuntu 8.10. Phoronix used its own extensive test suite on fresh installations, with the same parameters, on the identical hardware. The results are rather surprising. Update: I've added some more information about this, gathered from the Ubuntu mailing list. You can find it in the 'read more'.

Phoronix better be careful. Criticizing Ubuntu in any way shape or form will activate the swift vengeance of fanboys far and wide. They'll waste no time ripping to shreds anyone who dares criticize, constructive or otherwise, their precious Ubuntu. It's sad really, that a community can be so delusional in the face of raw data. Oh well, to each his own.
