    I always appreciate free lessons from experts in law, programming and English language, thanks!

    If only you would apply those lessons to yourself... I mean, really, you only had to read those...

    Sure NVIDIA wants their drivers in there, and Valve too. The problem is that the Linux kernel has a license that prohibits to distribute it without the source code. So it is illegal to distribute...

    So this gaming machine won't work out of the box? I'm guessing that since it's illegal to distribute a Linux kernel with Nvidia's binary drivers, when you get your new box you'll have to connect to...

    It should be noted than on 2.6.32, both the CPU and the I/O schedulers have been tuned for desktop usage (i.e, low latency), which means a drop in throughput in many cases. But desktop users should...

    Ok, so since everyone is trying to guess here, I'll try my guess too:

    Could the performance improvements (they are most notable in I/O operations) be due to changing the default in ext3 from...

    Seeing the bigger interest in notebooks lately in Phoronix, it would be cool if you could find some tests to benchmark wi-fi performance and battery life. It would have been interesting to compare...

    Now I benchmarked on Fedora 10 too and there I got 48fps in Tremulous, so the regression in Ubuntu 8.10 seems to be Ubuntu specific and not an upstream one.

    It really proves how useful it is to have a performance testing infrastructure in place (the kernel is thoroughly benchmarked on every RC, by Intel and IBM people especially) and how it prevents...

    Yes, your hardware should be up to twice as fast for this benchmark, plus you're testing at a lower resolution (1024x768 vs. 1280x800), so it's sad to see such a miserable performance. If I got 42fps...

    Yes, that was easy, thanks!

    Tested in Ubuntu 7.10 and got 42fps. I expect it to drop a bit in 8.10, maybe down to 35fps, but that's still quite better than the 22.6fps you're getting in similar...

    Could someone tell me how to benchmark Tremulous?...

    Could someone tell me how to benchmark Tremulous? I ask because I've tried it in a similar laptop to the one used for the article and what I see is 90fps in Ubuntu 7.10 and 75-80fps in Ubuntu 8.10,...

    I suggested before that barriers could be the reason of OpenSUSE's slower performance in that test. It's the only distro that turns them on by default. Maybe just testing with and without barriers...

    As far as I know, only OpenSUSE turns barriers on by default (using ext3). That would explain why it's so much slower in some tests (like the SQLite test), but strangely it makes no difference in...

    Hhmmm, looking through the archives I've found some previous benchmarks that don't seem to confirm the issues found in this latest one.

    For example, in this article Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 are...

    That could make sense. After all, the compilation time is not a big deal as long as the resulting binaries are fast. BUT, as the test shows, the resulting binaries, at least of audio codecs, are much...

    Are you certain that barriers are supported in that setup? I'm inclined to think they aren't. You should check your dmesg for any messages about it.

    Besides, there is nothing to compare against,...

    Well, the cost is known and accepted, so I don't know why you don't notice it in your setup. See this thread where the regression was reported (when they were enabled by default in 2.6.17), and the...

    XFS has barrier on by default (unlike ext3), but it's really strange that it has so little effect for you. Maybe your hardware doesn't support it and disables it? This is not a rare case and you...
