Initial Findings: MeeGo 1.1 Netbook vs. Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook

“Intel and Nokia last week rolled out MeeGo 1.1, which is now
officially available for Intel Atom netbooks, the N900 handset, and
in-vehicle “infotainment” systems. The netbook spin of MeeGo 1.1 is
out there to compete with the likes of Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook
Edition, which was released just shy of a month ago. While nothing
radically has changed with MeeGo 1.1 compared to the initial MeeGo
1.0 release from earlier this year, the software stack is updated
so for the past few days we have begun conducting a performance
comparison between MeeGo 1.1 and Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook. Here are
some of our initial findings.

“These initial tests are coming from a Samsung NC10 netbook with
an Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz CPU with a 945GME + ICH7-M motherboard
providing the Intel 945 integrated graphics. This Intel netbook had
2GB of system memory and a 32GB OCZ Core Solid-State Drive. For
reference in this comparison, MeeGo 1.1 has the Linux
2.6.35-3-10.3-netbook i686 kernel, X.Org Server 1.9.0,
xf86-video-intel 2.12.0, Mesa 7.9-devel, GCC 4.5.0, and uses a
Btrfs file-system. Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook ships with the Linux
2.6.35-22-generic i686 kernel, X.Org Server 1.9.0, xf86-video-intel
2.12.0, Mesa 7.9.0, GCC 4.4.5, and an EXT4 file-system”
