Linux OpenGL: Ubuntu 13.04/13.10 vs. Fedora 19/20

In several articles now there's been a performance regression found in GpuTest's Plot3D with the older Mesa 9.1 release doing better than Mesa 9.2.

Sans the Plot3D regression, the other GpuTest workloads tend to benefit greatly from the newer graphics stack.

Stay tuned for more thorough Fedora vs. Ubuntu benchmarks during the normal workdays along with the Fedora XWayland benchmarks and several other interesting test results coming up on Phoronix.
