Benchmarks Phoronix, known for their various speed tests and reviews, compared the latest in Ubuntu and what, until recently, used to be the lastest in Mac OS X with 29 different benchmarking tests. Some of the results were rather interesting.

How were you using it? I find my MacBook Pro far more responsive than my Gnome/Linux desktop with similar specs. Did you leverage platform advantages like OSX's consistent App-centric dock? For example, on Linux you wind up quitting the application constantly, just because you closed the last window. On OSX, quitting the application is typically a separate step, which means that your commonly used apps can be kept effectively preloaded. I really wish this would catch on for Linux.
