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.

In Linux, and most other OSes, recently used stuff gets cached, hence improving loading times. Just test it with the firt time it'll take a few secs to load. Close it, open it again a it'll load almost instantly.

The OSX feature you're mentioning is absolutely about the document-centric approach of OSX's interface, it doesn't have much to do with technical aspects of the OS.
