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 have to agree with you on Ubuntu grabbing packages. Moreover at least for me the Intel performance of Linux is not that good. Why? On my AMD systems I see great improvements. Moreover the quality of packages has degraded but not due to their development, but due to packaging. A comparison with Gentoo would be more fair if Linux was the target. If GFX is the target, Ubuntu is fine.
