Last week we shared that we were benchmarking Ubuntu's current
and past LTS releases and began by running graphics benchmarks looking
at how the proprietary drivers from the past compare to open-source
drivers from the present, but now we have our assortment of system
benchmarks to publish from the Long-Term Support releases of Ubuntu
6.06.1, Ubuntu 8.04.4, and an Ubuntu 10.04 development snapshot. In this
article, we are looking at how Ubuntu's performance has evolved over the
past four years.
