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.

Some of these tests look like they should be compiler/processor limited so the OS shouldn't really matter at all. I wonder, for instance, if they would have gotten the same result on the OpenSSL test from both OSes if they compiled the benchmark themselves with the same version of GCC.
