It would not be a review of "Hackintosh". It would be a comparison between the main OS'es.

So it would be a good comparison.
And it would be of interest for everyone, since I guess many are wondering how Linux, Windows 8.1 and OSX performs on the same hardware.
I know PTS is compatible with OSX since I enjoyed your comparisons between the main os'es in the past.
@Apopas: apparently because I can't say for sure. I just read some review about Mavericks on arstechnica and some other site, and that's what they say.
That's what common sense says. Unfortunately, common sense is not a rule worlwide.

I think Unity is junk performance-wise, and Unity 7 that is available in Ubuntu so far, has been dropped from development after all, since they are preparing Unity 8 for Mir.
So, since Unity 7 has been dropped from active development, I think it should not be used as the primary Linux benchmark.
I would like to see OS overhead tests, but I don't know if PTS has any. For example, is thread creation now cheaper in 8.1 than in 7, that kind of things.
Source engine does not rely on GPU all that much. Source engine is heavily CPU intensive.
