    Coming up shortly will be tests when using the latest Linux Git code, possible comparison with Fedora 21 from the same hardware, and also some power consumption comparisons between the operating systems.
    From the very bottom of the post.

    This is not a joke but a fact, unfortunately! Millions of people recognize this symbol in the same way a Christian recognize the cross.

    Performance is not the biggest problem for OS X. Bugs on the Intel driver are. Game breaking, not patched for years... A game works often flawlessy on Windows or Linux and it is completely broken on OS X.

    BSD tests

    Michael, Any chance we might see FreeBSD 10.1 vs Linux tests with both general and game benchmarks and both FOSS BSD Radeon and Intel KMS drivers and proprietary Nvidia drivers? Maybe also test OpenBSD, NetBSD, etc.? It would be interesting to see the state of open-source BSD performance as opposed to the latest Linux distros.

    It is sad that Apple can't do better with graphics drivers.
