Not that I can disprove your statement, but I think it probably has
much much more to do with the influx of new people and thus more
hardware and more variables in general. 2.4.19+LL runs as good as my 17
or 18 + LL. In other words I can't tell any quantitative difference.
Who knows what other patches people may have applied not too mention
choice of kernel options.
