"With Fedora 7, 8, 9, and 10 Snapshot 3 we had used the Fedora DVDs and for add-on package selection had just installed the "Software Development" group of RPMs. Fedora 7 was running the Linux 2.6.21 kernel, X Server 1.3.0, and GCC 4.1.2. Fedora 8 shipped with the Linux 2.6.23 kernel, X Server 1.3.0, and GCC 4.1.2. Sulphur, a.k.a. Fedora 9, was introduced with the Linux 2.6.25 kernel, X Server 1.5 pre-release, and GCC 4.3.0. Finally, Fedora 10 Snapshot 3 shipped with the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, X Server 1.5.2, and GCC 4.3.2. These package versions roughly correlate with the Ubuntu releases that occurred during the same periods, but there are a few differences.

"This time around we didn't run any graphics tests and focused the testing upon the areas where there were notable differences between the Ubuntu releases. The Phoronix Test Suite tests included LAME MP3 encoding, Ogg encoding, FLAC encoding, WavPack encoding, FFmpeg, timed Apache compilation, timed PHP compilation, timed ImageMagick compilation, Bonnie++, Flexible IO Tester, GnuPG, OpenSSL, BYTE Unix Benchmark, SciMark 2, RAMspeed, Bandwidth, Tandem XML, and Java SciMark 2."
