    I hope this isn't an insult to the article's authors, but those compile times look suspiciously like you forgot to enable both cores during compile.

    Did you compile with gcc -j 2?

    Otherwise, of course OS X would be faster, XCode probably passes that option to gcc automatically depending on the number of cores

    Default Valid math?

    In Sunflow Rendering System v0.07.2

    Ending out today's testing are our Sunflow results, where Mac OS X 10.6 ended with another win. This Java-based ray-tracing system was nearly 50% faster than Ubuntu 9.10. This is also another test where Ubuntu 9.10 had regressed compared to Ubuntu 9.04.
    nearly 50% faster than Ubuntu 9.10!?
    Ubuntu 9.10: 32.10
    MAC OS X: 20.15

    32.10 * 0.5 = 16.5
    => Thats 50% faster

    32.10 - 20.15 = 11.95
    11.95 / 32.10 = 0.37227414
    => 37.2 % faster

    I would NOT say 37% is nearly 50%.

    Pity, he forgot always to mention that it's not opensource (do you know XNU, Aqua, etc etc ?) and it can run legally ONLY on Locked-in Apple System...

    Was the 64-bit kernel in OS X used for this benchmark? The 32-bit kernel is enabled by default on every machine except for the XServe. You can use the 'uname -a' command to check.

    you sound like a socialist and probably are, and thats ok. But let me please remind you that the cash flow apple has is much greater than linux as a whole. Maybe not being open source freaks is doing them some good. You cant argue with results, sorry.

    Sorry but I fail to understand your point.

    This is definitely true. The point of writing open source software isn't to make money. If it was, there wouldn't be any.

    Default 64 bit

    Yea I was wondering the same thing. It would be nice to see some benchmarks between the 32 bit kernel and the 64 bit one
