    Yep that is also true. There is no magic: i'll pick this and that should cover everything .

    If Michael stick with Ubuntu he must know that vast majority is not covered, according to this vote pool (200+ votes right now) 70% of people will not be satisfied.

If you run any other distribution that provides the latest packages, then you are effectively in the same situation.



      What are you talking about? Ubuntu has Nvidia 319 which is the latest stable release. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/saucy/amd64/nvidia-319
      i Love how you cut up my post if you note i was calling Ubuntu that

          My preference are Fedora/OpenSUSE on equal ground, but voted Fedora, due to been having more the habit of CentOS and Fedora, but I very much like OpenSUSE, but for learning reason, I find myself dodging it, has don't want to make myself rely on YaST, has that tool even if very nice, is sadly distro specific, so no good if I find myself in a work environment without it.

            Same is for Fedora or any other distribution in this vote. As long a distribution does not clearly get the majority of all votes, you can always argue that the majority won't be satisfied.

              I think openSUSE would be the best option because it can be deployed and configured on any machine very fast and with any set of software. Phoronix authors can even make their own testing 'derivative' in SUSE Studio with all needed software included and available out-of-box (so readers can just download LiveUSB ISO and easily check test results for themselves).

                  Manjaro / Arch-based ?
                  Directly Arch.

                  Arch
                  Debian
                  OpenSUSE
                  Fedora

                    I think the number of mint users is greatly excessive.

                      Yea, I'd say that the choice should be made according to technical concerns, rather than popularity. While there are a lot of users voting for what in their opinion is the best benchmarking platform, as we saw in the last thread there are still a lot of users who just vote for their favourite. For one, I have no idea why Gentoo and Arch are even mentioned in this poll...

                      To make a reminder for everyone:
                      • Ubuntu is not a good benchmarking platform for the future, when it goes with Mir by default, since it would not be representative of the majority of Linux distributions.
                      • Fedora is a good choice in terms of being bleeding edge, thus a good benchmarking target, but its debug builds are a problem, even when you can install the nodebug kernel (since not only it has debugging on, as far as I know).
                      • openSUSE seems to be the best target overall, since it does not have the debug problem, has OBS that provides a variety of packages, and has SUSEStudio that allows creating snapshots of a system state in a LiveCD form, while also allowing for rapid deployment.
                      • Arch and Gentoo take too long to set up to be worth benchmarking, given Michael's limited time. The two options probably literally mean Sabayon and Manjaro, not the actual Gentoo and Arch.
                      • Debian Sid is a good choice in terms of not being as rock-stable as the main Debian, but its rolling-release status is problematic due to there being no reference point that would allow others to reproduce the results.
                      • Xubuntu and Mint are also good choices in terms of stability, although their future is still not set in stone. It's also not clear if Mint means Ubuntu Mint or Debian Mint, but presumably it's the former.


                      Quite frankly I'm surprised that Xubuntu and Mint got so low votes.

                      Unless there is a second round with only two options, in which case one of them will get more or equal to 50%. Or it could be two options and a "neither" option to see how many people are actually not satisfied with either option. Because overall it seems that people have priority lists, and even if the third from their list wins, they will still be satisfied.
