With Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 having made it out yesterday, we
couldn't resist but to run some new benchmarks of the Lucid Lynx after
our original tests last month found Ubuntu 10.04 was off to a poor
performance start. In some areas the performance of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Alpha 2 remains lower than in Ubuntu 9.10 -- largely due to performance
regressions upstream in the Linux kernel -- but we have also included
some very early performance numbers from Fedora 13.
