The reason OSX netbooks are slow in tests like this is that for the most part they are running whatever driver "will work". Unlike the G4s which were running the most tuned and mature drivers possible, given that Apple continued to tune them until the end. The netbook drivers for the most part are a complete crap shoot and performance can vary greatly from model to model depending on what individual components and chipsets are in each. One can expect netbook performance, especially on the more popular models, to get significantly better as people find/create better drivers.

Sep 19th 2008 2:32PM The site you are linking to, aboutprojectors, is some sort of preformed astroturf haven. Check out their forums with lots of posts talking about how awesome the site is, with the same "Steve" response on each of them and his post count never changing. Engadget shouldn't link to swill like this.
May 16th 2008 11:05AM What is with this Paul Miller poster and his blatant trolls? Both posts by him today have had strangely worded feelings about XP. This one saying this device didn't have a real OS until this XP port and the most recent saying the OLPC was getting an OS people wanted (aka XP). That comment shows a complete lack of understanding about what that project was even about in the first place. I expect better of the editors than this obvious comment baiting.
