A lot of Linux distribution reviews are centered around the ease of installation, new applications or versions of included, and generally how the reviewer 'feels' about it.

Naturally, this is somewhat flawed by bias. While this is part of a review process wouldn't these reviews be better served with some number comparisons?

What are your thoughts on how to more quantitatively benchmark linux distros?

What about performance of open office, K3b, Super Tux, cdrecord, etc?
