Description

We benchmarked Ubuntu, Suse and Redhat. We ran many tests of many different features. We know which system is fastest for which purpose.

These tests include user level application oriented tests such as logging in and finding files, as well as system level tests such as disk speed and web server speed.

Speaking experience

I've spoken at the Ottowa Linux Symposium, Linux.conf.au, the UK Linux Users Group, and many places in the United States.
