    Not that I think it would make a world of difference, but why couldn't you guys wait three days until openSUSE 11.1 goes final?

    Also, even though I get the impression you guys are all about Gnome, how about some benchmarks on KDE? I ran normal ubuntu on my Aspire, and it ran fairly well. Mandriva 2k9 ran quite well. Kubuntu is very, VERY sluggish. Of course, it's not just KDE - it starts slower than normal ubuntu did (don't know why).

    Actually, how about that, too - start-up time benchmarks.

    I have a Lenovo S10e netbook with a non-standard resolution of 1024x576, and i would be very interested to see how completely opensuse 11.1 will install on a netbook.

    1. does the wireless get configured properly
    2. does the webcam get configured properly
    3. is the native resolution easily selectable
    4. how well does the power management work

    regards

    Architecture?

    I don't know if other distributions do that too, but Ubuntu has a special architecture named "lpia" with all the packages rebuilt to take advantages of Atom features. So, did you use Ubuntu lpia or Ubuntu x86 for your tests?

    You give the impression that you're a tad biased against Mandriva, by using the 2008 version while 2009 is out :/ And I didn't see Mandriva in the GTKPerf tests, and there wasn't even a mention for it in the final page :/

    i have a mainboard with atom 330 (same as atom 230, only dual-core).

    i found fedora to be a bit sluggish (didn't test much). gentoo seems unfeasible at that hardware ;-). archlinux works like a charm.

    aside from that the desktop experience is quite acceptable. but don't hope for playing any recent 3d-intensive games at good framerate.

    More then likely beagle (the indexing service) which is enabled by default is the culprit.

    hi,

    I am very interested in your benchmarks, but I wanted to know if there is any reason not to display a standard deviation in those graphics. (Maybe to know also how many times you have performed the measures would be interesting too).

    I mean, to say:
    ubuntu: 40.5
    fedora: 35.5

    is quite different than:
    ubuntu: 40.5 +/- 20
    fedora: 35.5 +/- 20

    Thanks a lot for your work.
    Bye
    Luca
