Benchmarks David Williams over at iTWire has done a comparison of Windows vs Linux. It is performed by doing functionally identical tasks in both the OSes. This comparison is not a fair one by any measure. The laptops running the Windows and Linux were different in the hardware config and the software used for the tests were comparable but clearly different (MS Office vs OpenOffice; IE vs Firefox 3).

Haha, you made my day! But seriously - how can you even think about benchmarking two operating systems on DIFFERENT HARDWARE? This. Is. Totally. Stupid.
