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 think you are looking for this presentation:

http://www.linuxmovies.org/2008/fosdem.tux.with.shades.2008.pdf

And some people say graphics are shit on Linux. ;-)

"And GIMP doesn't compare to Photoshop", well there is CinePaint ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CinePaint ).

It does things Photoshop can't and "CinePaint originated as a rewrite of the GIMP 8-bit engine in 1998 and still superficially resembles GIMP". But it's a bit specific for it's field.

One thing that was obvious from that presentation is that linux was mostly being used for the renderfarms which is nice but not necessarily showing how 3D graphics performs.

Even so I have heard a number of animation studios use linux on the desktop too though this wasnt made clear in the presentation.
