1. What you might want to try is use either VM or real hardware, but if you
choose something stick to it, (meaning perform the tests for the OS's with
same specs) I'm sure you would have done this., am just asking you to double
2. GNOME and XP has lot of different start-up services which might affect
the test results., SO i would suggest after the initial install of both OS,
disable any un-important startup services in both., and restart the test.
(When i say services it also includes, disabling any anti-virus blah blah
3. Perform the test in different VM's(VM's by different vendors) possibility
is that some vendors custom there optimizations for a particular OS, so by
performing the test on different VM's from various vendors we can come at an
average time, would lead to a better benchmark.
4. Perform the tests with KDE and XP, coz, that might be a more closer match
with XP's startup themes and processes.
5. Then running the test 2-3 times with the above procedures will give a
more accurate result, and will also help identify where exactly fedora is
(Am sure your findings are true, but inorder to help developers isolate the
problem requires more vigorous testing)
Am sure other people will also be helping in testing simultaneously, which
should reduce your burden a bit.
