After spending the better part of the past week running continuous open-source Linux benchmarks on the Exynos5-powered Google Nexus 10, the first extensive benchmark results for the Nexus 10 tablet running the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview are now available. This performance comparison from Ubuntu on the dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 powered device is compared to numerous other ARMv7 and x86 devices. One of the interesting findings from this new round of ARM Linux testing is that the Google Nexus with its dual-core ARM SoC is competitive with AMD's first-generation Phenom Quad-Core processor for some demanding workloads.

I’m no computer wonk, but after having had to reformat my Sony VAIO with Windows 8 SIX TIMES in the four months since I bought it, I installed Ubuntu 12.10 and have not had to do anything since.

Knock on wood.

I can’t complain with Ubuntu. It seems to be a very reliable OS.

I put Ubuntu 12.10 on a HP Elitebook 6830p about 2 months ago - fast and flawless! Add Open-Office, and you’re all set. Have been also running Ubuntu Linux on a (very old) Dell Latitude C400 for more than a year. It’s been perfect for browsing the web, a few locally-loaded games, and light document and spreadsheet work.

Hear, hear.

Running Xubuntu (Ubuntu with a "lighter-weight" GUI) on a bunch of 6-9 year-old laptops around the house.

They network easily with each other and with the MACs here.
