Thats what I perceive of the people posting on this thread, people with the attitude of a child.
    Have you only just noticed this? Seriously, the forums here have always been full of rabid fanboyism. Sure, there *are* a few developers here with informed opinions, but the majority of forum content has always been fanboys bickering over whatever fanboys care about.

    Encouraged by Michael, of course, since this entire thread and poll is little more than troll bait...

      • Arch should be benchmarked

        While i am a (very happy) Mint user, i think Arch and maybe slackware should be benchmarked.
        Maybe results compared to a more user-friendly distro, like ubuntu.

        • Fanboysm?

          I think not.

          I think, more often than not, it's simply just a case of a persons experience with linux and they jsut want to see it promoted.

          That's a GOOD thing.

          But I'm biased. I'm me. I can't not be.

          • Sadly, I think Fedora is going to get the vote. Like many others I find OpenSuSE to be the better choice with it's Open Build Service and SuSE Studio for making and distributing a PTS Spin. In the end it is up to Michael to decide the way he wants to run things.


            On a side note, God only knows how many times Q voted...

                • The only way to make this an "unbiased" poll, would be for Michael to write a laundry list of features he needs and goals he's trying to achieve when benchmarking. That way, the suggestions would be hopefully only distros that meet these minimum features and goals.

                  Examples: Have GUI, Have compositing and non-compositing GUI's available, Most have reasonable user base (that way what he tests a actually mean something to readers, ect)

                  That would be the intelligent way of doing a poll vs what we have here which is fanboyish post supporting thier own distro of chioce, not thinking of the goals of the benchmarking Michael is trying to achieve.

                    I think your expectations for this forum are a little high.

                      Anyway I was thinking about a poll on which every user could select more than one distro. It's not unusual someone votes for two or three distros for different workloads (home, work, family, etc).
