ASUS Eee PC 901 / Intel Atom: Linux Distribution Comparison
Phoronix: ASUS Eee PC 901 / Intel Atom: Linux Distribution Comparison
Late last month we published our preview of the ASUS Eee PC 901 and we shared our plans for a number of benchmarks using this netbook with Intel's Atom processor. Following our Linux desktop encryption benchmarks of the ASUS Eee PC 901 and Intel Atom N270 CPU we have a performance comparison of Xandros, Fedora, Ubuntu, and Mandriva on this low-cost netbook PC.
It would be interesting to include the installed size of each distro.
I ask as I have recently attempted to install both Fedora 9 and Debian unstable on an OLPC XO, and Debian wins by far when trying to conserve disk space by doing a minimal sized install.
Also, do you have any insights into some of the large differences in benchmark results? Looking at the impact of default settings, and integration options, on performance would be a handy metric for choosing between distros.
what is the reason for such performance difference in compile test ?
BTW, I'm just curious, what will be the results of Gentoo compared to others. It is painful process to install (compared to binaries) it, but what the real difference in numbers is interesting question.
