Overall though these results shouldn't come as much of a surprise as they largely come out inline with prior rounds of testing.

Out of 107 different tests run, Ubuntu 21.10 was in front 67% of the time while the rest of the wins were split by Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Overall, Windows 11 Insider Preview is still trailing Windows 10 in some workloads but overall seems to be delivering similar performance to Windows 10 21H1. We'll see next month with the Windows 11 general availability release if it's still that way or there are some last minute performance optimizations and/or any build changes to help with the Windows 11 performance.

Look for more comprehensive Windows 11 vs. Linux benchmarks in October while for now those interested in all the 100+ benchmarks from this Ryzen 9 5900X + GeForce RTX 3090 round of Windows/Linux testing can find the data on OpenBenchmarking.org.
