My Arch Linux Experiment (Part 3)

,----[ Quote ]
| Welcome to the final part of my Arch Linux Experiment 
| series. For those that missed the earlier entries, I was 
| trying to find out if Arch Linux would be a viable 
| replacement for Kubuntu. When I last left off, I had 
| pretty much everything I needed straightened out and I was 
| able to take care of all of my needs within my Arch Linux 
| set up, and was ready to write about my final thoughts.



Arch Linux 2009.08 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| Arch Linux 2009.08 was released earlier this week with a new installer, more
| automatic configuration settings, many core package updates, and other
| changes to this growingly popular distribution. At the request of some
| readers, we have carried out some quick benchmarks to get a general
| understanding of where Arch Linux 2009.08 is performing in comparison to
| Ubuntu 9.04.
| [...]
| Ubuntu 9.04 did much better than Arch Linux 2009.08 when it came to the
| SQLite performance. The performance of SQLite databases seem to sway a lot
| between kernel releases and file-systems as our tests have shown in the past.
| Most of the issues were worked out with the Linux 2.6.28 kernel, but with
| EXT4 and the Linux 2.6.30 kernel there are some performance regressions that
| have come back. This issue by no means is specific to just Arch Linux.


Arch Linux: The Simple, Flexible (and Fast!) Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Arch Linux is a unique distribution, offering the latest free software via a
| super fast package manager coupled with a âkeep it simpleâ philosophy. It is
| fast becoming a very popular distribution and now thanks to their split
| packages, you can install a lightweight KDE 4.3 desktop for even more
| flexibility and speed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
