Phoronix: Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS vs. 8.10 Alpha 2 Performance
With Canonical having pulled many new packages into Ubuntu 8.10 from Debian unstable and there being the Linux 2.6.26-rc8 kernel, a near-final version of X.Org 7.4 / Mesa 7.1, and GCC 4.3 among them, we've decided to run a few early benchmarks of Intrepid Ibex. In this article we have enclosed 32 benchmark results from the Phoronix Test Suite comparing Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS to Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 2.

Michael, Canonical does not make Ubuntu, they contribute to it. There are quite a lot of non-Canonical Ubuntu developers that you discount by terming it this way. I think I have seen you write things like this many times.
One example is T.Aaltonen who actually does most of the Xorg package pulling.
