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.

I've not seen this mentioned yet, so I thought I'd say it here.

The only thing you could say is, bootcamp might mean same harddisk and certain parts of a harddisk are slower then others, I think the partitions start on the outside and get slower the closer you get to the center, right ? And the Apple softwas was probably installed first. I could be wrong ofcourse, but it is something I did got me thinking.
