It is an advantage of Linux, but it's also a fscked up way of leveling the field when doing Benchmarks/Stats/Lies. It's relevance is purley down to how you wish to portray your result!

naw! that's still wayyyyy too fluffy. use fvwm 1.24 as it performs like a ninja on any hardware! (Jakma. Bugger off :)
on a not so different note to the seti speed comparison thing. Is there an anti-FUD resource avaliable online anywhere, geared towards non tech managment types. I've been googling on and off for the last week for this type of stuff but alas all I can seem to come across is evangelical(sp) bordering on moranic rantings of why windoze sux & Linux/BSD is the only way to do everything from firewalls to contraception. I'm more after a "right tool for the job at hand" type of comparison, preferably
written by someone who doesn't ooze geekiness.
any pointers / help.
