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.

"The ONLY viable reason why a device maker would refuse to support Linux would be if they had been paid not to.

Yup, that has do be it. It's a big dark conspiracy.

The idea that a company might actuallty sit down and work out the number of extra sales they'll get by supporting linux vs. the cost of supporting linux and come to the conclusion that supporting linux doesn't make finanical sense is preposterous. It has to be Microsoft I tell you, they are EVIL!!!!

HA HA HA! I cannot believe how people think these days.

Developing software is a very expensive task. And developing drivers is even more expensive.

Particularly, what Linux has achieved on the desktop with almost no commercial support is admirable, but thinking someone is paying Linux programmers not to develop is really funny.
