I agree. If you're not going to help out and say something useful then don't say anything. Anything
can be used as a benchmark. Some things may be less useful than others, obviously, but the OP's point was very valid: glxgears should have roughly the same performance in both distros.
In any case, I had posted another thread before I noticed that this thread had good info in it (and not just some jerk saying glxgears isn't a benchmark). I'll try passing nopat to my kernel when I get home and see if that remedies. I'll edit this post/reply back here when I find out.
