    Phoronix: Ubuntu 12.04 Desktops Impact Performance, Power Consumption

    How does the choice of desktop environments you make for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS impact your system's performance and power consumption? Here's the latest round of benchmarking from the various Ubuntu 12.04 desktop environment choices -- Unity, Unity 2D, GNOME Shell, KDE, Xfce, LXDE, and Openbox -- when running them on three different laptops.

    Should be pretty much the same as gnome-shell.

    Because Ubuntu goes a few years a retarded solo.
    There are GNOME Shell benchmarks if you read the entire article...

    How about people make suggestions on improvements?

    I have a good idea. How about everyone makes suggestions on improvements and then post your results using the same testing tools that phoronix provides.

    I save extra/non-default tests for extra articles.

As said, each desktop was tested in their default/stock conditions. Your analogy would apply if this article was just exclusively looking at comparing window manager settings but what's being tested here is the stock desktop.

    Michael said once he ca adjust default if there are options that allows to do this easily. There's such option in KDE.
