openSUSE Tumbleweed vs. Leap 15.2 vs. Jump Alpha Benchmarks
The Python performance enjoyed a nice lead on Tumbleweed. That's likely thanks to Python 3.8 being part of Tumbleweed rather than Python 3.6.
Jump did jump to the lead with the Python startup time test.
The PHP performance was surprisingly faster out-of-the-box on Leap than Tumbleweed.
Those wanting to dig into more of these openSUSE comparison benchmarks can find them all on OpenBenchmarking.org. Overall though little surprise in the results - generally openSUSE Tumbleweed with its newer packages than Leap (or Jump) generally spell better performance, especially with newer hardware. This is similarly what users can find out of say using the latest Fedora release over Red Hat Enterprise Linux, albeit without the support and enterprise guarantees.
