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'.

If they want to proof performance this should be disabled before recompiling (But then you have 7.04):

pulseaudio
PolicyKit
Networkmanager
some last resort xorg stuff
....

kernel stuff
completely fair scheduler
selinux
preemptivness
