Attention OLPC Conspiracy Theorists

Remember when everyone was soiling their britches over the decision to upgrade the XO's hardware, thinking it was a sign that Microsoft was moving in? Well, Morgan Collett has some before and after benchmarks on how well the old and new machines run their native Linux apps. Basically, the new models are over twice as responsive in starting up and opening applications, moving the subjective user experience (in my interpretation) from "intolerably slow" to "acceptably slow."
