Benchmark Comparison Between Chromium OS, Moblin & Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Phoronix is a Linux technology website focusing on product reviews, distribution screenshots, interviews, and news. Today they released a benchmark comparison between Chromium OS, Moblin, Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala did extremely well.

From the article:
"Well, these results were certainly interesting to say the least and surprised us in some areas. When it came to our netbook performance tests from the desktop, there were not too many dissenting test results between the gaming, video playback, encoding, and disk test profiles. However, for those tests that did differ, Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 usually came out in front as being the best performer."

These test were done with a Samsung NC10. The NC10 is almost identical to the Dell Mini 9/10v and Vostro A90, they all use the Intel Atom N270 processor and Intel 945GME + ICH7-M Chipset with the standard Intel 945 integrated graphics at a resolution of 1024 x 600 .

While I am not the biggest fan of Ubuntu Netbook Remix this release, the results hold true for the standard Ubuntu release. All Ubuntu Karmic Mini/Vostro users should be satisfied that their operating system is preforming nicely against the competition.
