Benchmarks of software on NT vs. linux

Benchmarks of software on NT vs. linux

I have been hunting around on the web and I can't seem to find this

Here is what I am looking for: An official benchmark of several different
software packages running on NT vs linux. To be relevent the software
comparison should be done on the same machine. (Preferably on two
disks to avoid difference in access speed on the inside vs outside of the
hard disk.)

I have seen a few unofficial benchmarks of software that seem to indicate
a 40% increase of performance using linux. Are there any official numbers
out there?

It would be great to see a comparison of Mathmatica, doom, matlab,

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...
