Yes, the response on /. to "Ubuntu 8.10 is faster than Vista" was
generally "so what?"  One guy said his father in law with a slide rule,
graph paper, and a pencil was faster than Vista.  The consensus was
"faster than Vista isn't hard, we want it to be faster than XP" because
remember, that's what most people are running.  Why would they switch to
Ubuntu if it's going to make their machine slower?
