    Several Phoronix readers have brought up an important topic recently on Twitter and within our forums: what Linux distribution should really be be benchmarked the most? Ubuntu has traditionally been the most tested Linux platform here, but times may be changing...

    Debian. Or Fedora. Certainly not Ubuntu with its Windowzian "innovations".

    Arch linux or Gentoo ~unstable would be more appropriate since they have the latest packages. Ubuntu has taken a path with mir and its plain rotten.

    How about Sabayon? It is to Gentoo as Ubuntu is to Debian. It's fairly easy to install and doesn't deviate much from "the conventional desktop Linux" stack as you say.

    Could be Fedora or Debian or Open Suse.

    I in love for XFCE and Xubuntu too.

    Mint, because Mint is the most popular distro these days.

    Why Arch? Arch is a community, it is not a distro for all. I think phoronix should benchmark distribution with put the focus in the end-user.

    Fedora is nice, and It is try be a distro for everyone.

    Mint is Ubuntu with a beautiful art and other desktop.

    Fedora benchmarks please.

    Ubuntu can keep it's new home on phones/tablets and leave the mess it made of the desktop alone.
