So I can say only one thing: "fedora does something in wrong, performance-loss way".

I'm not sure if this is still the case, but I know SuSE used to not enable synchronization in syslogd. Yes, synchronization slows down your logging, but it also greatly improves the chances of having a record of why a system crashed, which is important.

I don't mean this as a knock on SuSE, and I don't think that's why you're seeing this difference on your desktop, but it's a great example of how people with different design priorities can make different, reasonable decisions that may seem wrong to someone with the other priorities.

Performance is all about tradeoffs. If you actually analyze the problem, you can usually design an intermediate solution that's good enough for people across most of the spectrum. There will always be outliers with special needs, but you can usually make Fedora (or openSuSE for that matter) satisfy them will a little careful tweaking.
