Yeah, I supposed something alike :-)
Basically, I have same concerns over this that Steven expressed below - for serious HPC work, it is more important to choose carefully between all available implementations of low-level libraries (for example, regarding BLAS kernel, between ATLAS, or vendor implementation like Intel Math Kernel Library, or maybe Kazushige Goto's implementation), than to choose over one Linux distribution or another. And, again as Steven stated below, it is much more important, regarding overall efficiency, how the algorithm given is actually parallelized...
