Unbelievable Phoronix Benchmarking Report -Ubuntu 7.04 to 8.10 Benchmarks: Is Ubuntu Getting Slower?

Phoronix forum recently released a benchmarking report about Ubuntu 8.10. Ubuntu 7.04 to 8.10 Benchmarks: Is Ubuntu Getting Slower?

Ubuntu 8.10 RC was released only at the midnight of 23rd that means it is on 24th October(See this). The test result says they tested it for 100 hours. The result is published on 27th October. How they can test 100 Hours with in 62 hours. I suspect and I am asking how mush ubuntu competitors paid for it. Because this test comes out before few hours of ubuntu 8.10 release. http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=13022

It's very easy.
100 hours / 4 version = 25 hours / version

In my mind the guys over at phoronix are pro ubuntu so not sure what your thinking that they would take a payoff to make the new 8.10 look bad. I'm sure that more testing will show that there are some issues with the hardware versus 8.10 being that much slower.
