Fedora 7 to 10 Benchmarks

Filed under
Linux

Earlier this week we published benchmarks of all Ubuntu releases from 7.04 to the release candidate and had found the performance degraded with time, at least with the test system we used. As part of our testing to explore this issue, we had repeated many of the same tests on Fedora with all of their releases going back to Fedora 7. Has Fedora's desktop performance degraded too?

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.

CentOS 7 KDE: not for home users

Whom can I recommend CentOS to? Probably to people I mentioned in the very beginning of this article: students who want to dedicate their life to system administration. You need to learn how to search for the answers, how to do things manually. That is your profession. That is your bread. CentOS gives you a brilliant opportunity to learn all of that along with learning the system itself. But CentOS is not for home users who want things done quickly and easily, I'm afraid. Read more

Solus OS

For the seasoned users among you, chances are you may have previously heard about the development of the Solus operating system – for both good and bad reasons. For those less aware of the behind-the-scenes antics, you might want to check out our full interview with its founder, Ikey Doherty, back in LU&D 162. Following on from a successful launch, the project looks to offer a stable, and alternative, take on the more common GNOME-based distributions. Without doubt, Solus’ most distinguishing feature is its unique graphical interface: Budgie. The Budgie desktop has been written from the ground up, enabling easy integration into other distros and is essentially an open source project in its own right. Read more
