"To see where these Linux distributions are at, we used
their latest development releases and then performed all package
updates as of 2009-07-15. Following that, we ran an arsenal of
tests using the Phoronix Test Suite. Here are the results.
"We used our standard Intel Core 2 Duo test setup for this
four-way distribution testing, which is running an Intel Core 2 Duo
clocked at 4.00GHz, an ASUS P5E64 WS professional motherboard
(Intel X48 + ICH9R), 2GB of DDR3 memory, 160GB Western Digital
WD1600JS-00M Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive, and an ATI Radeon X1800
256MB graphics card. For this testing we installed OpenSuSE 11.2
Milestone 3, Ubuntu 9.10 2009-07-15, Fedora Rawhide, and Mandriva
Linux 2010 Alpha 1. The x86_64 build of each distribution was used.
We then performed all development package updates as of 2009-07-15.
For OpenSuSE some of the key packages included the Linux 2.6.30
kernel, GNOME 2.26.2, X Server 1.6.1, xf86-video-radeon 6.12.2,
Mesa 7.4.4, GCC 4.4, and used an EXT4 file-system."
