Ubuntu 7.10 vs. 8.04 Benchmarks
Phoronix: Ubuntu 7.10 vs. 8.04 Benchmarks
Back in December we looked at the initial Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 2 performance by comparing it to Ubuntu 7.10. In that article we had found the performance between the two releases to be roughly the same. Now that we're nearing an end in this development cycle as Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) will be released later this month, we've ran a new set of benchmarks comparing the latest Ubuntu 8.04 packages to the previous Gutsy Gibbon release.
Please test the memory usage
I tested it myself about a month ago and it was DOUBLE the Gutsy memory usage. Please do some official tests.
