[News] Performance Comparison: Fedora vs Ubuntu GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu 9.04 Beta vs. Fedora 11 Beta Performance

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week marked the release of the Ubuntu 9.04 Beta and this week there is 
| the planned release of the Fedora 11 Beta. Both distributions are similar in 
| the respect they will be upgrading several common packages like GNOME 2.26, 
| but in Fedora 11 are more upstream (and experimental) bits like kernel 
| mode-setting, the EXT4 file-system by default, and various other features. 
| Being the Linux benchmarking fanatics that we are, we set out to run a few 
| performance tests comparing the Ubuntu 9.04 Beta to the latest Rawhide 
| packages that will make up today's Fedora 11 Beta release.       



Fedora 10 vs. Ubuntu 8.10 Benchmarks

| In past distribution comparisons at Phoronix, the performance differences
| have been larger than what we experienced with Fedora 10 and Ubuntu 8.10.
| Both the x86 and x86_64 editions had performed nearly identical. In fact, the
| results are so close that it's hard to call a winner in any of the
| benchmarks. There's a few slight deviations in tests like the timed Gzip
| compression and BYTE Unix Benchmark, but nothing conclusive, at least with
| the hardware configuration we had used and the real-world tests conducted.


Linux vs Linux

| Well, that’s what Atomic’s here to sort out for you. We’ve looked at
| distributions at all levels, from the newcomers that need a bit of
| hand-holding, to those looking to get their feet wet with command-line tools
| and new technology, and the Linux kung-foo masters that are ready for
| something truly hardcore.    


First look: latest Fedora and Ubuntu betas really shine

,----[ Quote ]
| The developers behind the increasingly popular Ubuntu and Fedora Linux
| distributions announced the availability of new beta releases last week.
| These betas, which offer users an opportunity to get an early look at the
| functionality that will be included in the next major versions, are already
| highly polished and showcase the growing maturity of the desktop Linux
| software ecosystem.



23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.
