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?"

But the distros do patch the kernel, and compile with different options. They also run background programs like yum-updatesd.

Indeed, these benchmarks at least where a bit more usefull compared to the earlier ones which really where stupid... If they continue to improve, their second next benchmarks might even be very interesting...
