Benchmarks Here is the continuation of a series of comparison tests that is without doubt bound to cause a huge amount of controversy: Workstation Benchmarks: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu Linux There are performance wins and losses on both sides of the fence, but Ubuntu compares very well with Windows 7, and no doubt these tests indicate a much closer performance comparison than most people would have expected.

I have not yet RTFA, but I want to say one thing before I do: Another name for "Workstation Benchmarks" is "A waste of time." If you know anything about performance comparisons, or have ever attempted to prove that one thing done on a computer is more efficient than another thing done on a computer, it will be very clear why.
