Again, CentOS 5.4 scored another win. This time CentOS 5.4 was marginally ahead of OpenSuSE 11.2 RC1 and Ubuntu 9.10 with the OpenMP-based GraphicsMagick test using the HWB Color Space operation.
The positioning was the same with CentOS finishing in first when it came to image resizing with GraphicsMagick.
CentOS 5.4 lost to Ubuntu 9.10 and OpenSuSE 11.2 RC1 when it came to the measured Blowfish performance with John The Ripper. Both OpenSUSE and Ubuntu were just under 30% faster than CentOS with this metric.
