I use OS X and linux daily at work and home.

I agree with the original speed comparison made regarding gnome/X and Aqua. My subjective judgement is; on my powerbook OS X draws/redraws and resizes windows about the same speed if not a little quicker than my gnome gentoo machine... my powerbook running panther is a g3 400 and my gentoo box is a p4 2.4 (same amount of ram on both, linux box with a faster HD).
