[News] Fedora Power Benchmark; Fedora 11 EoL

Hash: SHA1

Is Fedora Going Through More Or Less Power?

,----[ Quote ]
| Along the same theme of yesterday's article 
| entitled Is PowerTop Still Useful For 
| Extending Your Battery Life? today here are 
| some results showing the power consumption of 
| the past three Fedora releases (11, 12, and 
| 13) from a notebook computer.
| This is just a quick, weekend test and more 
| power tests from Fedora and other Linux 
| distributions will be published in the 
| future. Clean installations of Fedora 11, 
| Fedora 12, and Fedora 13 were carried out on 
| a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 notebook with an Intel 
| Core Duo T2400 (1.83GHz) processor, 1GB of 
| system memory, an 80GB Hitachi 
| HTS541080G9SA00 SATA HDD, and ATI Radeon 
| Mobility X1400 graphics. Via the Phoronix 
| Test Suite we monitored the notebook's power 
| consumption when running off the six-cell 
| battery under different workloads. 


Fedora 11 End of Live Announced


Fedora 11 reaches end of life



- From Fedora 11 to Ubuntu 9.10

| Bottom line: I don't think Ubuntu is really
| any better than Fedora. Setting up ANY Linux
| distro to navigate codecs and video/audio
| formats is a pain. But for both key distros
| (Ubuntu and Fedora), it's the sort of thing
| you mostly just do once. Call it a couple of
| hours -- but less than five minutes of
| typing. I kind of like the idea of the new
| Ubuntu One program -- free online storage
| that promises to sync across systems.


Fedora 12 vs. Ubuntu 9.10 Benchmarks

| In many of the tests Ubuntu 9.10 had carried
| the lead -- both by small and large margins --
| but the Karmic Koala had stumbled when it came
| to the OpenGL performance, PostgreSQL, and NASA
| NPB. Of those areas, the OpenGL performance is
| the most intriguing with such a dramatic
| difference when using the same exact graphics
| driver from NVIDIA, which we will continue to
| explore and run other OpenGL tests available
| through the Phoronix Test Suite.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
