Do you plan to include a Gentoo box in the multi-distro comparision? It would be interesting to see the effect of optimizing for the local processor with -march=native.
Though essentially Gentoo is not a single distro. Off the top of my hat I would guess that at (almost) full-system LTO, march=native and -O2 vs. -O3 might make a difference. And naturally the desktop environment… (on a stock Gentoo you don’t necessarily have X…).
I wonder why there still is no benchmark made for "full-system LTO, march=native and -O2 vs. -O3", not that i care about linux, its just that i saw hundreds of useless and freaky benchmarks made on phoronix by cocky linux fans, who thinks that linux is better (or will be after 1000 years) than any other os ( loool ), and to make this one should be equal to get nobel prize for achievements for linux, instead of getting a "Losers cap" :) So, who wants it ? :)

Come back when Windows runs on 80% of super computers, runs most of the infrastructure of the web, can be turned into special purpose version that is just 5 MB in size, runs more than a few phones or when you are able to fix a bug in your OS yourself.
