Benchmarks Of The Gentoo-based Sabayon

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gentoo-based Sabayon Linux 
| distribution had advantages over Kubuntu 
| particularly when it came to the graphics 
| performance (OpenArena and World of 
| Padman), PostgreSQL, and PostMark while 
| Kubuntu had its advantages in 7-Zip, 
| Apache, LAME MP3, and John The Ripper. In 
| the other tests, the results were very 
| close between Sabayon and Kubuntu with no 
| clear winner.


Arch vs. Slackware, a friendly comparison

,----[ Quote ]
| As you might know, there are about a 
| hundred thousand million billion Linux 
| distributions. (For those who donât know, 
| the âLinuxâ core is an operating system 
| kernel, and people take it and build 
| collections of software around it called 
| âdistributionsâ, and people install these 
| distributions, and then, in casual 
| conversation, call the distribution 
| âLinuxâ.  All this adds up to confusion 
| for people who donât already know it all.)



The Phoronix Kernel Test Farm Is Alive

,----[ Quote ]
| The first step of that new endeavor is the
| Phoronix kernel test farm. As of this morning,
| the first system -- of hopefully many to come
| -- is online and operational. At least one
| more system should also go online this week in
| time for the Linux 2.6.33 merge window. These
| test systems are to automatically install the
| latest Linux kernel every morning (using the
| code from the Linus Git tree) and then they
| spend the day running benchmarks. With the set
| of tests currently being run, the testing
| process for each kernel every day runs for 13
| to 14 hours! There are more than 50 tests
| being run through the Phoronix Test Suite and
| they include multiple disk, ray-tracing,
| computational biology, server, compression,
| audio/video encoding, physics, cryptography,
| and tests representing many other areas of
| interest. Results are then uploaded to
| Phoromatic automatically from this Linux test
| farm (temporarily being built out of my living
| room, actually).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
