These benchmarks are very preliminary and only cover a select number of tests, while in early 2008 we will be taking a more thorough look at the performance of Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron" in different environments. So far the performance looks to be roughly the same between the 2.6.22-based Ubuntu 7.10 and Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 2. After the Alpha 2 release tomorrow, the next Alpha release is planned for January 10.
