Greetings everybody!

	Phoronix ran performance tests on releases 7.04, 7.10, 8.04 and 8.10rc.
8.10 seems to be the worst performer of the quartet. Have a look at
their summarizing article:

	They are trying to be fair and point out possible causes for the
slowdowns. While this has only been tested on a ThinkPad T60 their
initial findings are nothing to write home about. Most influential are
crucial parts like the kernel, gcc, Xorg, graphics-drivers.

Time for alarm-bells to go off?

Best regards ...
