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?"

Here, on Athlon 3500+ with 1GB of ram, it's way longer to open Firefox or Gedit. Subjective feel of speed is more based on responsiveness, I don't really care if encoding an album will take 10 or 12 minutes because I'm going to switch to another task anyway.
