Linux "The Linux 2.6.31 kernel is still under active development until it is released later this quarter, but the merge window is closed and most of the work going on is to address bugs and other regressions within this massive code-base. Some of the key additions to the Linux 2.6.31 kernel include many graphics-related advancements (merging of the TTM memory manager, Radeon kernel mode-setting, Intel DisplayPort, etc), an ALSA driver for the Creative X-Fi, initial USB 3.0 support, file-system improvements, and much more. To see how the general system performance has been impacted by the new Linux kernel that is in development, we have a few benchmarks today."

Generally, Phoronix has about as much credibility as The National Inquirer. They are more interested in hits on their website than whether Linux gets faster or slower.

Real regression tests get posted to the LKML and indicate some level of competence (i.e. a syscall trace or postulate rather than some buffoon running stock benchmarking tools). Luckily, some folks at Intel run good tests from time to time.
