    If they release about the same time, they perform basically the same. What I find interesting is testing the last 5 releases to see how a single distro has changed over time.
    Unless I'm mistaken the PTS always builds the test package set on the test machine - as such, performance difference can only be a result of an older GPU driver, (radically different) kernel configuration and/or, older GCC versions.
    However, once you start comparing the distribution binary packages (E.g. comparing Fedora postgresql RPM vs. Debian postgresql deb packages) you might actually see far bigger changes, as a result of difference compile options, different library stacks, etc.

    Not sure about 3.13, but in general F-current gets a new kernel once it hits x.x.1, with F-1 getting the same kernel immediately after.
    As for F-2, it may get one last kernel release before EOL.

    Too bad you didn't benchmark responsiveness. Fedora is using 1000Hz kernel while Ubuntu is using 250Hz. It could have some impact on games.

    In the few areas where the two distros did differ notably (various I/O tests), how do these compare with previous versions of the same distros? I seem to recall this being a point of difference between Fedora and Ubuntu in previous versions too...

    However, its very unlikely that it will ever receive Mesa 10.x.

    Fedora 20 was delivering better AIO-Stress disk performance on both systems over Ubuntu 13.10, even though both operating systems were using the EXT4 file-system.
    Yes, but they're using different schedulers.

    I just switched to Fedora 20 few days ago after years of using Ubuntu and I can say Fedora is now far more polished than Ubuntu. Is Canonical spending too much of their resources on Unity and Mir instead of polishing the OS?

    hmm I have here got kernel 3.12 (not 13.12 ^^) yes, but I dont got Mesa 10.x yet, not even in testing Mesa 10 is.

    I think it will come and hope it, but till now nothing on the horrizont.
