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.

They definitely should have used a system that would be decently supported in both OS's (nvidia graphics). Linux lost all the benchmarks that involved graphics acceleration, which is unsurprising I guess considering the quality of intel graphics drivers.

Also, this article reminded me of why I never go to phoronix... page 1 of 34834, sigh.

I open The Register and what do I see

Karmic Koala - the next Ubuntu - will deliver improved video performance, tapping a new video driver architecture from Intel

The thing about Ubuntu and Linux in general it evolves and improves so fast
