    Ubuntu derivatives

    I think an Ubuntu derivative such as Kubuntu or Xubuntu would do. You have the immensily popular Ubuntu under the hood, and you are even setup to compare Mir/Xmir vs Wayland/Xorg very easily ...

        Personally I find Ubuntu sluggish on the same machine. I now use only Debian and KDE myself. Which on my machine works far better than even Windows 7 (used on some of the office machines.)

        If this is benchmarked, I would recommend the nVidia binary drivers over Nouveau.

        My specs are:

        Kernel: Linux version 3.2.0-4-686-pae ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14) ) #1 SMP Debian 3.2.46-1

        Distro: Distributor ID: Debian
        Description: Debian GNU/Linux 7.1 (wheezy)
        Release: 7.1
        Codename: wheezy

        KDE: 4.8.4

        System:
        CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
        GPU: NVIDIA Corporation G71 [GeForce 7300 GS] (rev a1)
        Network: 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

          Simple answer: the ones people use the most. So Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, and Debian. No one cares about distributions that no one is using.

            Strange reasoning. Many Phoronix users dont give a shit about Ubuntu, and it's one of the most used, if not the most. So are you talking about used in the whole world or used for Phoronix readers who are actually the one reading and commenting on the articles (and with a bigger average knowledge of Linux than the average of the Linux users out there)?

            With the Unity, Mir and no-Systemd decisions I think Ubuntu must be ditched from Phoronix.

            I'd like to see Arch or Fedora benchmarks.

                Uhhhhh.... No. Check Steam for Linux. Check internet traffic sites. They tell a different tune.

                  I think the most unused distro possible should be used. Some barely developed project by one guy who will quit the project the moment he gets bored. That's the FOSS spirit right?

                    I fully agree. There is no point in benchmarking distributions which are not used by many people. So for now, just stick with Ubuntu until the majority of Linux users moves on.

                    Also, if you decide to use a different distribution, please choose one which is actually usable for daily work. Many people here in the forums use their operating system as a playground and don't mind if it breaks. The majority of the people however, need an operating system which can be used to get some work done. Therefore, please use a distribution for your benchmarks which can also be used in an enterprise environment, not a toy-distribution for OS devs.

                    • openSUSE

                      For my 2 cents I would say openSUSE. There is a tumbleweed repository for latest official kernels and libraries if wished, has a great build service and is desktop indifferent.
