Mac Performance

G5 vs. CoreDuo! Who wins?

Looks like the CoreDuo beats the G5 using R to perform the tests. Ominously, Linux and Windows XP absolutely crush the G5 running OS X; even Linux running on the G5 knocks the socks off OS X. The author says it is the microkernel’s fault that OS X performs so poorly. And the author is not very keen on Apple products. Hmm. Guess my next computer will be an AMD Opteron system running Linux.
