First up are the disk benchmarks.

While SQLite wouldn't build on Ubuntu 8.04/6.06, the results from the past four LTS releases are interesting in their own right: between Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 was a big boost in performance.

With the synthetic FS-Mark benchmark, the EXT3-using Dapper Drake and Hardy Heron releases were reported as faster than the more recent releases using EXT4, but then again these are performance tests not looking at file-system reliability and other factors.

With the modern Ubuntu LTS releases, between 10.04 and 12.04 seemed to have the greatest improvement for the EXT4 performance on this system using solid-state storage.

Compile Bench hits a performance high for itself with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
