    Phoronix: How Ubuntu 16.04 Is Performing Compared To Five Other Linux Distributions

    As it's been a month since our last large Linux distribution comparison (a 10-way Linux distribution battle), here are some fresh benchmarks of six Linux distributions to see how their out-of-the-box performance compares. From a Core i7 Broadwell system, the updated versions of Clear Linux, Fedora 23, CentOS 7, openSUSE 42.1, Ubuntu 15.10, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS were compared.

    Seems to be a little bit more than just compiler optimizations. Check out all the patches in glibc alone!!

We also have a lot of infrastructure to make it easy for us to use -O3 for performance sensitive parts of the OS while using the normal -O2 for the bulk of the OS (and -Os for some of the size sensitive parts).
    Thanks for those details, if performance is due to optimization then... good job

    (I used to play too much with flags before and had a lot of surprise so I was puzzled about how you did achieve this)

    Ubuntu Debian, kinda the same thing. Anyway looks like MOST these advantages could easily be turned on in any of these distros, for example I always turn on DRI3 now, its one of the first things I do. Would be nice to know what compiler flags are being used with clear and if their safe to toggle on in other distros....
