Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks

"With Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 having made it out yesterday, we couldn't resist but to run some new benchmarks of the Lucid Lynx after our original tests last month found Ubuntu 10.04 was off to a poor performance start. In some areas the performance of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 remains lower than in Ubuntu 9.10 -- largely due to performance regressions upstream in the Linux kernel -- but we have also included some very early performance numbers from Fedora 13.

"While Ubuntu's Lucid Lynx has already had two development releases, Red Hat has not yet put out any development releases for Fedora 13. The first and only alpha release of Fedora 13 is planned for the middle of February while a beta release will come at the start of April and then the final release will enter the world towards the middle of May, assuming there are no delays. With that said, Fedora 13 is still heavily in development and will certainly change a lot between now and then (especially with how closely they follow some packages and their upstream involvement), but we have included benchmark numbers from the 2010-01-13 nightly compose desktop image of Fedora Rawhide."
