For the last OpenGL game being run in this comparison, Xonotic at low quality settings was noticeably faster than Ubuntu Linux with Mesa 8.0. Fortunately, at least Ubuntu 12.10 continues to deliver better graphics performance than Ubuntu 12.04. This is due to the updated graphics stack (well, they aren't yet to Mesa 8.1 yet) but there is the Unity desktop performance fixes (https://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=17449).

When the visual richness of Xonotic was increased, at least the performance gap between OS X and Ubuntu narrowed slightly.
