,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux 2.6.23 kernel has been released today and we have some preliminary 
| benchmarks of the 2.6.23 kernel as we compare it to the past Linux 2.6.22 
| kernel. We will have more on the Linux 2.6.23 kernel once we have tested it 
| more extensively, but the benchmarks we have ran so far include Quake 4, LAME 
| encoding, Gzip compression, and RAMspeed.
