Nice info there, thanks for posting this.

For me tho and I tend to go by the beat of a different drummer, I prefer to only use Win7 for everything. Yes I know I go outside the realm of hardcore benchers who flip OS's for every single thing.

I've had a mixed bag of results different from other's around town on which os benched better. I wouldn't take this as a hard-fast rule on which os to bench with but more of a guide. Personally, I think it's best to have 8 operating systems on a multi-boot to see for yourself.

Soon, I'll have all these operating systems installed and updated as any regular os would be and bench it from that perspective.
