btw as of more recent results linux no longer thrashes win2k.  contrast:

http://www.spec.org/osg/web99/results/res2000q4/web99-20001211-00082.html

all this really means is that if you write hand-tuned in-kernel code you
can, surprise surprise, get pretty much to the limit of the hardware.  we
saw the same thing a few years ago when IBM and Sun traded off quad Xeon
records on specweb96 (looks like microsoft eventually broke both those
records).
