We all like to brag about our tech being the best. We all have stories about how our choice made things better than someone else's. Truth be told, it's all crap. Apple, Linux, Windows.... All crap. It's funny how we fool ourselves into thinking that our turd somehow smells better than others. Then we conduct intricate benchmarks and comparisons of rasterized 3D scenes as if rasterization will mean something a decade from now. I'm sure that early industrialists did the same with steam engines via graphs of torque at different RPMs versus temperature and pressure, versus how many dinosaur turds you can fit into the furnace, as if the perfect steam engine was going to change the world any more than the mediocre ones did.
I've always felt that Linux would be the launchpad for whatever comes next. It could be the foundation for the next big technological advancement. People seem so concerned with making it outperform Windows/Mac that they've lost sight of the goal. Stop competing with Windows. Stop competing with Mac. Stop trying to build a better steam engine. In other words, "Fuck Nvidia".
Nice to see Ubuntu mostly win the tests. Too bad Windows wasn't included.
I'd like to see a feature and functionality comparison too. There-way of Ubuntu, OS X and Windows.

I forget if both of those sources and the sources within them explain everything I mentioned but you can probably find what I said pretty easily.
As pointed out on techreport.com:

As for the wallpaper thing, LOL. Who actually uses the default wallpaper (especially if they don't care for it)?
