    Phoronix: Ubuntu 9.04 Beta vs. Fedora 11 Beta

    Last week marked the release of the Ubuntu 9.04 Beta and this week there is the planned release of the Fedora 11 Beta. Both distributions are similar in the respect they will be upgrading several common packages like GNOME 2.26, but in Fedora 11 are more upstream (and experimental) bits like kernel mode-setting, the EXT4 file-system by default, and various other features. Being the Linux benchmarking fanatics that we are, we set out to run a few performance tests comparing the Ubuntu 9.04 Beta to the latest Rawhide packages that will make up today's Fedora 11 Beta release.

    Which is a bit of a shame, then...

    Yggdrasil Plug and Play hasn't been around for a long while now...

    Yay my first post since my registration in 07 :S

    Fedora and Ubuntu are my top two distros. Fedora, IMO, seems to have more up to date packages than Ubuntu. This can be both bad and good depending on your system, needs, and hardware. Currently, I have just one machine (lappy) and it's running Ubuntu 8.10. I have not had one single problem with it since my initial install of Ubuntu 8.04 (I did a distro upgrade).

    So based on that, deffinately get Windows

    I suppose it's very easy to see the 6 months difference right now due to KMS. F11 will have KMS for 90% of graphics cards out there (Radeon R600+ and Nvidia will be disabled by default, though), and Ubuntu will have nothing

    As of kernel 2.6.29.1-46, the debug has been removed in F11. Perfomance is better and memory usage is down. So you can redo your testing now.

    Actually, since version 8, Fedora has not put out a shaky product.
    I use both Fedora and Ubuntu, and here is the difference.

    Fedora, vs UBUNTU released versions are essentially the same. Only Fedora is snappier, and between 6mo and a year ahead of UBUNTU for the same applications.

    UBUNTU, being an off-shore distribution, gives you access to "Ugly" codecs, Fedora, complying to USA law, does not, and Fedora does not tell you how to get them. You learn the url name from webs.

    I have not had any Fedora crash, since 2007. That includes server applications and virtual machines.

    Which is a better distribution. The better one is the one for which you have more comfort-- the first one you started with is always a favourite.

    Yes, because Ubuntu is known for being such a stable distribution and is not taken every 6 months from Debian Unstable and claim to do in that time what takes two and a half years to Debian developers. And because they don't dare to enable ridiculous things like PulseAudio or Desktop effects by default. Also, they normally take the right decisions on behalf of their users.

    Your just hoping for some Fedora fans to hop in and start another retarded Ubuntu vs Fedora war, don't you?
