Ubuntu 8.04 had won in 14 of the 28 tests. Mandriva 2008.1 had won in three of the nine tests where it was used. These three tests were all Java-based within SciMark 2.0, which performs mathematical calculations. In 9 of the 19 tests that were just between Ubuntu 8.04 and Fedora 9, the Red Hat based distribution had won. In many of these tests, the results were very similar while in others there was a much greater delta. As to which distribution is the fastest, from all of these tests and their varying results, it really depends what areas of the Linux desktop are important to you. We'll have more results from the Phoronix Test Suite up shortly. Feel free to run these tests on your preferred Linux distribution and then upload the results to PTS Global.
