    what it gives to linux? thats easy it gives them what linux needs... users...
    linux may not need theyr code, but it surely needs theyr users to atrack outside companies.
    and the the phone thing dosent mean they left the desktop, sure they are a bit more focused on the phone right now but they need to be becuase it wheres it needs to be fixed/finished mostly.
    profit? i think the phone will atrack more users to ubuntu from outside linux meaning more profit and more outside suport.

      You haven't read a thing I wrote, did you? Or you still think I consider Ubuntu a variant of GNU/Linux. Or you are too green to know the difference...

          Concerning:
          The reason Fedora (and some other distributions) are not benchmarked more in the ever-changing Linux landscape is their use of debug builds by default for development packages, which can negatively affect performance.
          -> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RawhideKernelNodebug
          (Or just use the latest stable release kernel on rawhide)

            I'd vote for adding OpenSUSE in the benchmark-ed list just because i am an opensuse user since several years already so i could use a professional opinion (aside my own (amateur-ish) benchmark).

            Being an amateur also prevents me for providing a professional reasoning but I wonder if you would see a good idea to provide a cross comparison between many distro's (the mainstream ones maybe if bench marking the majority might be a problem), maybe grouped on the kernel version.

Far too much variation and it's not exactly a system you can just set up and tear down in a hurry. If the debug build issue can be resolved then Fedora seems ideal. It doesn't stray too far from the norm but does keep close to the edge. It's also commonly used.
              Seeing so much support for OpenSUSE, I think I'd like to add my own support for that too. It has impressed me lately but I didn't think others would be interested.

                Trying to be constructive...

                One stable distro: Debian/Ubuntu LTS
                One up to date distro: Arch
                One more "not very well known" distro: Chakra or something. Could be changed every now and then...
                And something evil: Win if you got the time.

                Yeah, and regarding DEs, KDE have my support...

                  The distro with the highest market share using deb. Currently probably Ubuntu.
                  The distro with the highest market share using rpm. Currently probably Fedora.
                  The distro with the highest market share using cutting edge rolling release model to track the latest in Linux. Currently probably Arch.

                  In my opinion benchmarking these 3 categories gives a good general picture.

                    What about Korora

                    What about Korora? Its basicaly Fedora but thinks are working out of the box.

                      I'd say, it depends on the benchmark and the readership (current and potential). But that has to be balanced against available manpower. I'm afraid that for desktop usage benchmarks, with the Mir/Wayland split, it soon will require two distros (or at least 1 common base with both graphical servers) no matter what. For now, stick with Ubuntu, it's fine.
