No, that table was prepared by Gonzalo Odiard in July 2013, and
discussed on devel@ at the time, and sugar-devel@ mailing list in
November 2013.

The results are all because of memory contention, and the fixes are to

1.  run the operating system from SD card, (which releases a lot of
memory), or

2.  add swap partition on SD card, (which moves little used memory to
the card).
