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.

Not exactly Pixar but for BigBuckBunny at the Blender institute we ran all 64bit linux workstations with 4-8gig of ram and 2,4 and 8 core PCs.
Whilst we didnt benchmark the NVidia cards on windows and linux generally performance was good, and there was no way we were going to use 64bit OSX or Windows for the short movie.
