"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."
