    Default Fedora 17: Beefier Than Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

    Phoronix: Fedora 17: Beefier Than Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

    Proper and extensive benchmarks of Fedora 17 against Ubuntu 12.04 LTS are forthcoming, but here's a preview of some results...

    Fedora 17 was quick to adopt GCC 4.7 where as Ubuntu 12.04 LTS took the conservative approach of living with GCC 4.7
    I think you meant that Ubuntu stuck with GCC 4.6, no? Anyway..
    Thanks for the benchmarks. It's good to see a performance boost with gcc 4.7 and newer kernels, even for Ubuntu users.

    Does Fedora 17 comes with a software center now? I'm sorta attached to Ubuntu or Mint for this.

    Sorry, I didn't quite get that. The compile bench is faster on Fedora because it's GCC 4.6 vs. 4.7 or because disk access is faster in Beefy Miracle?

    The Ubuntu Software Center is being ported to PackageKit as GSOC project so even if there isn't one yet there soon will be.

    Michael,

    Please consider using Fedora (Or any other Linux distribution that comes in first) the next time you do a Windows / Solaris / BSD vs. Linux benchmark.
    Using the slow(er/est) Linux as yardstick is plain wrong.
