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.

Responsiveness is heavily dependant on the machine load.

Under low-load (means less than 100%) conditions Linux is a bit less responsive than Windows. Under full load Linux is by far more responsive than Windows (at least XP).


I have experience the same. However, Mac OS X under the same circumstances is even more responsive than Linux.
