    Phoronix: OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Delivers Some Performance Improvements

    For some workloads, the recently-released Apple OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" operating system is faster than its predecessor, OS X 10.8 "Lion". Here are some comparative benchmarks from the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display and Intel Ivy Bridge 2.3GHz Core i7 processor.

    I want to see Ubuntu 12.04 LTS thrown into the mix.

    Would be nice see OS X 10.8 vs Ubuntu 12.10 vs Windows 8 shootout!

    This is a head-scratcher, isn't it? "Linux hardware reviews, Benchmarking, and Gaming", or "My Latest Apple Toy" ?

    On what hardware? Michael's already said there's a few problems running linux on the macbook. And why does it make a difference anyway?

    *facepalm* You're seriously complaining? Really, this article is a problem to you? My god some people on these forums just have nothing better to do than to complain about content that is FREE TO VIEW and completely OPTIONAL; you are under no obligation to view it. He has the hardware, he has the OS, he has the tools, and he has the time. Why not benchmark it? So what if it isn't open source? Its not like he filled the entire front page of Apple stuff. That's like saying somone buys a flatbed truck for construction purposes but you decide to bitch at owner for going off-roading with it because that wasn't the intended use for it.
