BENCHMARKS - SCO vs Solaris vs Unixware vs etc...

Does anybody know if a benchmark exists for these UNIX OS's?  I would like to
see a performance comparison of these on the same machine.

1. Linux vs OS2 vs NT vs Win95 vs Multics vs PDP11 vs BSD geeks

        Every machine and operating system has got its useful

        I see no point in argueing with people which OS is better, and
which is worse, and what will survive and what wont...

        The bottom line is obviously the best OS is the one that make
the end user most productive.    Ive used quite a variety of software
from intel, ibm, MS, sun, GNU, DEC/compaq, etc,   and everything OS
has got its UPz and DOWnz, so depending on what you want to do with it
yer machine, probably determines what OS you run.

        So lets cut to the chase -  OS bashing is a waste of time,
and most of the time I'd say the person putting it down just hasn't
seen that particular OS's potential,  or should I say speciality....

      Hell,  Plan 9 has even got some interesting features.. <snicker>

       And all PC users know,  that no matter what use on a day to day
basis on the PC, that one day you will need to boot good ole ancient
DOS to do something...

2. Driver for TC5048-T (Now on Sale for $79.) ???

3. Filesystem benchmarks: ext2 vs ext3 vs jfs vs minix

4. Xenix driver

5. SunOS 5.6 vs Solaris 2.6 vs Solaris 7 vs Solaris 8

6. Any way to intercept instand messages?

7. NIS and ksh vs. chs vs. tcsh vs. etc.

8. Change sound from internal speakers to external?

9. Benchmarks x86 Solaris vs Linux and Solaris 2.6 x86 vs sparc

10. Perfomance: tar vs ftp vs rsync vs cp vs ?

11. Slackware vs SuSE vs Debian vs Redhat vs ....

12. DOS vs. Windows vs. Mac vs. Unix vs. NS

13. KDE vs. Openlook vs. Xfree86 vs. MetroX vs. CDE
