With the Lenovo ThinkPad T60 we used for testing the performance in Fedora 7 through 10 hadn't swayed nearly as much as it did with Ubuntu 7.04 through 8.10. In a few tests we witnessed Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 Snapshot 3 running a few percent slower than Fedora 7 and Fedora 8, but not by a large magnitude. Additionally, Fedora 10 Snapshot 3 is a development release that will run slower than the final release of Fedora 10 due to the debugging support. The tests where there was the largest performance margin between Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 was in FLAC audio encoding, WavPack audio encoding, timed PHP compilation, timed ImageMagick compilation, Bonnie++, and Flexible IO tester. In general the performance of Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 was fairly close to that of Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 8.10. Still, this is not enough information to draw any definitive conclusions, but we are continuing our testing and we will have out additional benchmarks next week with other hardware.
