Here are some extra Linux distribution benchmarks for your viewing pleasure this weekend.

Following the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS last week, I was running another fresh performance comparison of various Linux distributions on my powerful Xeon E3-1270 v5 Skylake system. I made it a few Linux distributions in before the motherboard faced an untimely death. Not sure of the cause yet, but the motherboard is kaput and thus the testing was ended prematurely.

However, if you are curious for some Ubuntu 16.04 LTS vs. Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS vs. Clear Linux 7530 vs. openSUSE 42.1 vs. Scientific Linux 7.2, here are those numbers.

All the same hardware was used during testing and each Linux OS tested out-of-the-box via the Phoronix Test Suite.
