Comparison of Linux/x86 and Solaris/SPARC

Post 1


I have been trying to get some info on the speed comparisons of Linux/x86 and Solaris/SPARC.

Having searched google and yahoo numerous times, I have not really come up with anything of real interest or value to help compare the two. I have had a look at the SPEC results, but I am wondering if anyone has any experience, or pointers about this, or where to find some real information?

I know you can not really compare the two on most tasks, but in terms of processing power of single thread processes, it would be nice to have some sort of benchmarks/data that can be discussed.
