  • If multiple bases were to be chosen, I, like many before me would have to agree with;

    1: Debian; rolling or not, its entire existance is based around sanity and being stable.
    2: openSuse; It's quite simply one of the most polished user experiences out there. Rich ecosystem of support
    3: CentOS; Baseline for hte other camp for solid server/workstation OS and as posted previously, Fedora might be a little bit to picky to build for
    4: Ubuntu LTS; Has to be done!

    These are baselines and theoretically should not prove to many problems for a solid base to work from and supply real-world results.

    Then go nuts with the likes of Arch, Fedora, Crunchbang, Mint, Chakra, PCLinuxOS, *BSD, et al.

    Having a server host the installers across the network for any of these system's should make rapid deployment a breeze if preconfigured correctly. I believe I saw a post mby Michael once saying he does something like this anyway.

      In the case of openSUSE, you don't even need that, you can use SUSEStudio to host all your installation images. Or use AutoYaST for automation. Both of them are based on the same technology, Kiwi.

        Debian 7 (no GUI) instead of Ubuntu.
        Redhat instead of say OpenSuse.

        The child distros add and tweak their linuxes, or add or subtract things that may skew results. You need a baseline before you can compare.

        So I'd advise to benchmark Debian 7, right from debian.org. Then compare it to Ubuntu. The same with Redhat as well.

        I look forward to the results then.
        foundation? opensuse and redhat?

        Oh boy....

        maybe you should think about that for a minute.

        (hint: opensuse has nothing to do with redhat. And fedora nothing with SuseLinuxEnterpriseServer)

          No, that still doesn't make much sense. Both Debian and CentOS are very stable, which means that they don't reflect the current state. Also, openSUSE is a foundation distribution ? it started off as a fork of Slackware, but hasn't relied on it for many years now. Fedora is likewise a foundation distribution. It started off as a fork of Red Hat Linux, but it's been the driving force behind RHEL ever since, not the other way around. So while I would agree that the more independent distributions should be tested, they shouldn't be oldly stable. Debian testing would be fine in that regard, though.
          replace 'many years' with '20 years'.

          And if you are looking at that: EVERYTHING started off as a fork of Slackware.

          So.. no. Suse stands for itself as much as Redhat/Fedora.

            Are you kidding? The first release of S.u.S.E Linux was over 7 months before the first release of Red Hat.

            • Ubuntu

              Ubuntu is still the best platform to carry on the benchmarking I believe

              • +1 vote for openSUSE

                +1 openSUSE, the one distribution I keep coming back to no matter what else I might play with temporarily, and the only one that really "feels right" to me. It's been my distribution of choice without exception since I started using Linux in the mid '90s.

                  • What Distribution Should Be Benchmarked First? openSUSE, of Course!

                    My Suggestion is to stick with the fastest just as the big guys do. openSUSE, upon which SUSE LINUX is based, is known to be the fastest and most configurable of all of the Linux distributions. If speed is what you want and you have the required knowledge to configure your distribution, look no further than to use openSUSE. Here are some links you can view:

                    The Distribution can be found here: http://software.opensuse.org/123/en

                    Here is a good link to view: https://www.suse.com/promo/ibm-watson.html

                    And How about this one: http://arstechnica.com/information-t...supercomputer/

                    AND Here is some of the Help we provide:

                    And if you want to make a Live USB, once using openSUSE, have a look here: http://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jdm...rsion-1-00-82/

                    I can go on and on, but I think you will get the picture. If you want the fastest Linux distribution possible, it has got to be openSUSE. There are many good distributions out there, many which hold your hand if that is what you need, but the nature of speed requires some extra effort on your part and openSUSE is the one you should give a try.

                    Thank You for using openSUSE,
