Back in May, we published benchmarks of Mac OS X 10.6.3 vs.
Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 10.04, along with other times, looking at the
performance of Apple's Mac OS X operating system relative to Ubuntu and
other Linux distributions. In most of those articles though we used Mac
Mini computers, but now with a new Mac Book Pro in our labs with the
latest Apple/Intel hardware, along with the most recent versions of each
operating system, we have carried out a new set of tests that is also
more in-depth than our earlier published benchmarks.
