Interesting that they should use Leopard when comparing Operating Systems, particularly since it hasn't been released yet, nor has the feature set been finalized.

Yeah I thought that was strange too.

On the security bit for OS X it says default setting not very secure. Since I got mine all I've done is started the firewall in the preference settings. What more can I do?

I think I would have upped security in Vista to 'very good', and OS X to 'excellent', but apart from that it seems accurate!

It's all very subjective and general, but I can't really fault anything as specifically wrong.

Sooper Fast!
They did say ganes run slower in Vista, which is something that hasn't been apparent on any of my systems...

Mac is the only one that has Excellent as a final result.

Actually, Leopard, an OS that's not to be released until October, is the only one with an excellent.

This seems more like speculation than a real comparison, unless they have a full release version of Leopard already...

Really? Use FRAPS and you'll see about 10% of your framerate has disappeared.
