I wonder if Fedora 15 (KDE) will still be faster than Kubuntu 11.04?
One of the annoyances of Fedora, is the LVM-by-default install pattern that is used, which is great for desktops, and possibly basic servers, but generally sucks arse for laptops.
And LVM will always kill performance.
I am fairly sure removing LVM would even the disk performance numbers up to minimal differences.
Hmm. LVM vs non-LVM, as well encyprtion vs non-encryption would be really interesting benchmark. (remember to use some hardware with harware support for AES, like some newer core2 cpus).
