I agree, that is what I was trying to demonstrate. I'm surprised I was voted down for saying so, I simply was stating my interpretation of the benchmark I linked. People are always to eager to vote down comments because they don't like what they say, even if the comment is civil and just an attempt at discussing the matter at hand. ;)

Its not like my link was out of the realm of reality either, this two part AnandTech article talks of similar issues with OSX:

So, the link seems to show that Linux on G5 is faster than OSX on G5, at least for some things.

The thing we should see in the spring, which should be very interesting indeed, is what the situation is on Intel, and also head to head, what the situation is on Intel not just versus Linux, but versus XP. We should also get it for 'real world' stuff like Photoshop actions.

We'll get costings as well. Looking forward to this one!
