For what it's worth, in the comments, many people calmly (of course,
there were a few angry ones) about this--that Fedora, unlike the others
tested, has more debugging code in Rawhide. 

The best thing to do--for someone who had the time and inclination,
would be to get the phoronix test suite and run it using F11 or perhaps
a debugged F12 if they have the ability to redo it, and run it against
either of the other two. (I'd go for Ubuntu, since it's on one CD.)

However, I think it's the proverbial tempest in a teapot--I haven't
seeen any mention of it on the forums.  It's probably one of those
things that excites people for a day, but is unlikely to turn the distro
hoppers away from trying F12 when it comes out.
