Ubuntu 7.10 + WINE vs. Windows XP

| While the 3DMark series are synthetic benchmarks, they had worked well under
| WINE 0.9.46 and served their function of comparing Windows XP versus the WINE
| performance with Ubuntu 7.10.

When will we have the benchmark of Windows running Linux programs like KNode,
Amarok, and GNOME desktop?

Quake 4 On XP, Vista, & Linux

| However, I spent the extra time and while I was at it had run three
| Quake 4 v1.3 benchmarks in XP, Vista, and Fedora Core 6 (2.6.20 kernel).
| The hardware used was a modest AMD Sempron setup with a NVIDIA GeForce
| 6150 and the NVIDIA 1.0-9755 drivers (the hardware chosen was to
| represent the more common Linux user rather than using an octal-core
| setup). The NVIDIA driver on Vista was 100.65 while the XP version
| was 93.71. Below is the average frame-rate from each test on each
| operating system.
