June 3rd, 2005 - interesting performance comparison article in light of the
news of Apple & Intel coming together.
"Mac OS X is incredibly slow, between 2 and 5(!) times slower, in creating
new threads, as it doesn't use kernel threads, and has to go through extra
layers (wrappers). No need to continue our search: the G5 might not be the
fastest integer CPU on earth - its database performance is completely
crippled by an asthmatic operating system that needs up to 5 times more time
to handle and create threads."
