I once saw some SETI benchmarks, which showed a _huge_ difference between block times on identical hardware depending on which version of Windoze is used. (huge = tens of percents)
I have noticed in the past that Proth and Primeform have both run faster under Wine than natively on NT (which I think was the fastest of the windozes in the seti tests I saw), but only by about 2%. My guess is that it's a combination of several things. Firstly memory management, and secondly task scheduling. Nowadays Linux is very efficient at both.
