GDI+ uses hardware acceleration for many things, so yeah, I'd say that Linux is behind it currently as well.

Vista is something like 8-9 months away from shipping, and is already feature-complete. The betas that have been released so far are quite usable, just buggy.

Whether you like it or not, Linux *is* currently behind, and will be behind for the next while.
