"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.

"For this initial round of Ubuntu 9.04 versus Fedora 11 testing we used the Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64 release and on the cap-wearing side we used all of the Fedora Rawhide (x86_64) packages as of March 29, 2009. The Fedora 11 Beta provides the Linux 2.6.29 kernel, GNOME 2.26.0, X Server 1.6.0, xf86-video-intel 2.6.99, Mesa 7.5-devel, GCC 4.4.0, and by default is formatted to an EXT4 file-system. The Ubuntu 9.04 Beta meanwhile shipped with the Linux 2.6.28, GNOME 2.26.0, X Server 1.6.0, xf86-video-intel 2.6.3, Mesa 7.3, GCC 4.3.3, and was using the default EXT3 file-system."
