Blender is such a highly specialized and powerful rendering app that at least two Linux distros are built around it. This cross-platform 3D graphics application matches features and performance of the leading commercial equivalent software packages. Professional-strength rendering software is not a tool for tinkerers. It also is not a product that must-have-it users will find at bargain prices. In fact, the open source product -- in other words, Free Open Source Software, or FOSS -- may well be the only free option for serious designers.

"According to its developers, BlenderBuntu renders a scene 44 percent faster than using Blender elsewhere."

That's not accurate. They claim it's faster than Windows (http://blenderbuntu.weebly.com/performance-tests.html). I haven't found any figures on their website about using Blender on Fedora or vanilla Ubuntu, for instance.
