From a Linux Today story: In early July there was a lot of excitement about the SPECweb99 results of two almost identical Dell machines, one running Tux 1.0 on Red Hat Linux and the other running Internet Information Server 5.0 on Windows 2000. The results showed the Linux machine with over 2.5 times the performance of the Windows 2000 machine. A reader noticed that recently another Dell machine has been added to the SPECweb99 results page. Interestingly enough, this machine has 8 processors.
