    Did you try repeating these tests on multiple instances of each instance type? Otherwise noisy neighbors could skew comparisons to other servers.
  2. These numbers aren't necessarily comparable,...

    These numbers aren't necessarily comparable, since they probably weren't on the same instance (neighboring instances in EC2 can often affect performance). I'd be curious to see a comparison of AWS...
  3. Battery life

    These tests do not reflect what kind of battery life you'll get in Windows vs. Ubuntu. Both OSes have different power management profiles when they are not on AC power.

    I would like to point out that there are two preconfigured kernels in the Ubuntu repositories, linux-image-2.6.xx-generic (default for the Desktop metapackage) and linux-image-2.6.xx-server (the...

    A couple of options you could take are:
    Correlate tests to subsystems they stress, then do a quick search through their changelogs/bug reports.
    Do not focus on the fact the numbers changed. Ask why...

    Content

    I appreciate the great job Phoronix does on reporting news in the Linux community, but I find that the benchmarking articles could be much better. I don't need someone to show me a graph and then...

    Hardware Database

    You could also just make a hardware database. Let users add new devices and add links to Newegg, Amazon, etc pages. If you review a device you could just add it in a special Phoronix Review section...

    Newegg

    Another option is to add comments to Newegg product pages, and insert links to your website for more details. Maybe Newegg would be willing to add a "Linux Compatible" checkbox in their search tool,...

    Yay! I was using 190.09 on my 9800M GT, but 190.16 locked up the computer when GDM was starting. I'm going to try 190.18 now.

    That sounds like a different issue then. The regression mentioned in the article is specific only to certain Intel gpus. The cause is likely the update from Mesa 7.3 to 7.4. The symptoms are...

    I haven't had crashes with UXA, but it doesn't seem to resolve the freezing issue either.
  12. Widespread Regression

    This doesn't really have to do with Netbooks. This is a regression with a wide range of Intel graphics chips. The freezing issue seems to have cropped up around 4/3, but so far a fix has not been...

    Useless?

    Aren't these benchmarks rather pointless? Running laptops on AC means automatic power saving won't kick in. This means that you cannot gauge how long one OS will take to run down the battery vs....
