    Is Fedora 15 Faster Than Ubuntu 11.04?

    Phoronix: Is Fedora 15 Faster Than Ubuntu 11.04?

    Ending out May, we have an interesting set of tests comparing the performance of Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04. This is looking at the "out of the box" performance of both operating systems on three different systems. Not only is the actual test result looked at, but we also compared the power consumption of the two operating systems.

    Hmm. LVM vs non-LVM, as well encyprtion vs non-encryption would be really interesting benchmark. (remember to use some hardware with harware support for AES, like some newer core2 cpus).

    Default LVM partitions

    One of the annoyances of Fedora, is the LVM-by-default install pattern that is used, which is great for desktops, and possibly basic servers, but generally sucks arse for laptops.

    And LVM will always kill performance.

    I am fairly sure removing LVM would even the disk performance numbers up to minimal differences.

    I wonder if Fedora 15 (KDE) will still be faster than Kubuntu 11.04?

    Gentoo users will.

    Why not use some of the billions in ad revenue you make from this website to purchase a few AMD processors?



    I keed.

    I fully agree.
    Hence the reason for my question

    Michael,

    Is PTS still self compiling the tested software?
    If so, have you considered adding, whenever possible the built in version to the mix?

    It doesn't matter if Ubuntu 11.04 is faster, Fedora 15 is just better and the Shell goes a long way to do prove that.

    I just got a Sandy Bridge laptop from Intel last week as a Software Development Platform to use for driver testing...
