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'.

well however they were configured... the tests show some big differences. I think that this is normal as hardware gets faster software can take advantage of that and add more features. I don't think this should be a huge deal, although since devs are saying it could be an issue I guess we'll be seeing more performance work done (hopefully).
