    check out this comparison... it's pretty cool and not so biased

    there seems to be an error on the wav to mp3 comparison though... vista beats ubuntu by a sec, the comment on the results is wrong

    You can ignore the comments about memory usage as the guy clearly has no clue how the 3 operating systems manage memory, which is a requirement in my opinion on commenting about memory management. The rest of the article is dubious at best

    regardless of the tests run I think its a pretty superficial review

    well... it's not great -like the video compression... tmpgenc is a lousy encoder to bench with, it's slow as hell-, but i haven't found many reviews/comparisons focused on performance between these systems (and with tests and all)
