    and everything works fine...???!!!
    It's the older 2008 (or 2007) era Mac Minis that have known issues with 64-bit Windows.

      if only

      I think the best comparison for the 2 OS's is if only Ubuntu Linux can be installed on a Mac computer natively (i.e. dual boot) without the use of virtualization, then we can see the real deal between these 2 OS's.

      Or use the same hardware specs as the Mac computer for the PC platform and install Linux on it and we see the difference.

      Bottom line is that a Mac computer is where OS X really belongs.

        IIRC you CAN install Ubuntu in Mac, otherwise I don't know why they used to give a PPC image.

          You have been able to do this for years and this is how this article was done. No "virtualization" were used in these benchmarks.
