"Mindcraft released the results of a study comparing the performance of Red Hat Linux 5.2 (updated to the Linux 2.2.2 kernel) and Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 operating systems. According to the report, Windows NT Server provides over three and a half times the performance of Linux as a Web server. Furthermore, the report shows that when testing Windows NT Server and Linux as file servers, Windows NT Server provides over two and a half times the performance of Linux."
