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'.

This behavior is described in the social judgment theory (psychology).
And it's called an auto-reference judgment error.

One will attribute it's own success (internal factors), but attributes to others their failure (external factors).

Ex.
Ubuntu is faster: This is a clear advantage of open-source and Linux
Ubuntu is slower: The test is wrong, the author is bias or/and it wasn't configured properly
