Earlier this week I shared some new OS X 10.10 vs. Fedora 21 vs. Ubuntu 15.04 benchmarks, which were quite interesting and Linux ended up having the upper-hand on this new Mac Mini with an Intel "Haswell" CPU sporting Iris Graphics. For those interested in more cross-OS benchmarks with Intel Iris Graphics, here's some additional results.

These extra results were just from Xonotic given it's one of the more demanding open-source games that works very well on Windows, OS X, and Linux with both the open and closed-source graphics drivers.

These extra data points from this Intel Core i5 4278U system with Iris Graphics show OS X 10.10.2, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 15.04 + Mesa 10.6-dev, Ubuntu 15.04 + Mesa 10.6-dev + Linux 4.0 Git, and Fedora 21 Updated.

Those wanting to find these extra numbers can visit this result file.
