This seems to be a pretty standard phenomenon nowadays. Where you have a "study" that miraculously comes out favorable towards the people who funded the "study". Frieza's right though, for example you see this everytime Intel or AMD release a new processor along with "benchmark" results.

this is quite obvious. no way will microsoft pay for or publish anything saying they are in any way worse than linux, especially this little statistic:

Percent of Source Code Freely Available:
Linux: 100
Windows: 0

Apple also did that with the G5 processor. How is it the first 64 bit processor when UltraSparc was available before it? Why were certain things turned off in the Xeon's and why did apple get a speed optimized malloc library?

Testing involves optimizations...often it will be a copy of windows specially made for the test and a generic redhat...so maybe the boot is slower if you dont turn off ten unnecessary daemon processes!
