"Similar to our August tests, we used a newer Apple Mac Mini for our Snow Leopard vs. Karmic Koala benchmarks. This Mac Mini is made up of an Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 clocked at 2.00GHz, NVIDIA MCP79 motherboard Chipset, 1GB of DDR3-1067MHz system memory, a 120GB Fujitsu MHZ2120B SATA HDD, and a NVIDIA GeForce 9400 512MB graphics processor. For some important version numbers when it comes to the software side, Mac OS X 10.6.2 is using the 10.2.0 kernel, X Server 1.4.2-apple45, OpenGL 2.1 NVIDIA-1.6.6, GCC 4.2.1, and a Journaled HFS+ file-system. Ubuntu 9.10 final has to offer the Linux 2.6.31-14-generic kernel, GNOME 2.28.1, X Server 1.6.4, OpenGL 3.2.0 NVIDIA 190.42, GCC 4.4.1, and an EXT4 file-system. The same package set is shared between the x86 and x86_64 editions, albeit a different CPU architecture. Like our other operating system comparisons, we are strictly looking at the "out of the box" performance for both Ubuntu and Mac OS X."
