Care to see how Linux running on AMD's Opteron and Intel's Xeon processor compares to Mac OS X running on a G5? This is your article.

Some excerpts below:

"This article is written solely from the frustration that I could not get a clear picture on what the G5 and Mac OS X are capable of. So, be warned; this is not an all-round review. It is definitely the worst buyer?s guide that you can imagine. This article cares about speed, performance, and nothing else!"

"The G5 is a gigantic improvement over the previous CPU in the PowerMac, the G4e. The G5 is one of the most superscalar CPUs ever, and has all the characteristics that could give Apple the edge, especially now that the clock speed race between AMD and Intel is over. However, there is still a lot of work to be done."
