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'.

How do you know this?

Not to be confrontational, but I would at least expect numbers. Personally I have not been able to "feel" a difference in speed between the various distros.

I'm curious to know whether the tests that they're going to do on fedora will be any different.

Not really helpful in even attempting to quantify if they are slower or faster than each other.
