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 don't count application loading times as "responsiveness." It's how responsive the system remains while loading something that matters. Caching apps in memory does not and will not work in every case so when the system does need to start loading something, possibly even a really heavy app, it should do it in a way that the rest of the system stays responsive and useable.
