I have an HP laptop (A10, 6GB RAM, AMD video, BEATS audio) that is my Linux only machine.  It has a 750 GB drive and I have a pair of 120 GB partitions where I install distros and the remainder is a shared data partition.  LL 2.6 sits on sda1 and it controls GRUB.

So I haven't used any other distros in a while so I installed the latest Ubuntu Mate on sda2.  I like Mate (it seems the runaway CPU core issue is gone now) so I set it up the same as LL 2.6 to compare look and feel.  Both LL 2.6 and Mate are configured as close to the same as I could given the different DEs.  (kernels, xorg, startup stuff)

So, like I always do I run the benchmarks in the system profiler (hardinfo) and the "blowfish" test is the one I use for quick comparisons.  In LL 2.6 it scores a 4.08, in Mate I got 4.85.  Big difference and it must be due to the overhead in Mate as the hardware didn't change.  This test don't really mean anything, I was just surprised at the significant difference...
