Industry research shows that most of the performance difference related to Linux and OSX are impacted mostly by HFS+ performance and TCP/IP throughput. Gnosis Software (a Linux-oriented company) has performed Linux benchmarks which detail the primary differences in performance.


(Not sure what release of OSX or which version [server or client] was used. But, this benchmark is a good point for discussion.)
