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.

"Before giving some detailed results of some of the specific tests, the overall testing showed that Ubuntu was faster than Mac OS X in 18 of the 29 tests. Some were landslides while others were only ahead with marginal differences for both systems."

(Sadly) this is wrong. Mac OS X won 17 of the 29 benchmarks. You probably missed the "fewer are better"-labels in some of the tests.
