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'.

I find Ubuntu gets more and more pleasant to use each year. If it wasn't for a different show-stopping bug each time, I'd be using it more. Hopefully 8.10 irons out the out-of-the-box faults I had on my netbook, I'm in need of Firefox 3 and Asus won't get off their arses.
