So i guess it is proven now what i said about OpenSSL test in
The 2.6.29 test definitely was run with 64 bit!!! Compare to:
The speed improvement is only possible using a 64 bit build. Different kernel do not matter for that. Maybe for 3d performance + intel benchmarks. Or maybe add 2.6.29/30 tests.

I am a Linux user too, but I have to admit that the 3d games benchmark is WAY MORE important than the openssl signs/second...

Hopefully, the nasty Intel driver regression will be fixed soon and Linux on Intel graphics will outperform MAC.
And since SQQLite regression is already fixed, soon we will be able to say that Ubuntu/Linux outperforms MAC in most aspects. Unless Snow Leopard can improve enough to keep up.
What's going on here?! :O

I just went through the numbers, I may be off by won or two, but Ubuntu-64 one 15 tests, Mac 13, Ubuntu 32-bit won 1. And this includes 4 or 5 graphics tests, where there is an obvious regression in the Intel drivers.
In terms of "sweeps" (tests won by a factor two or more), I recorded 5 for mac and 4 for Ubuntu. Again, most sweeps for Mac are Graphics.
So, it looks to me as if, apart from the graphics regression, Ubuntu 64 bit performs better overall.
