The Linux Kernel is VERY slow compared to Windoze

Apprarently Linux results are being compared to Windoze results, and because of compiler diffs, many Linux results are being thrown out.

I suggest that EAH scheduler should separate workunits so that they are not split between different OSs.

I suspect that the validation, if only carried out within Linux results would allow better optimization

The Linux results are twice as slow as Windoze results on equal CPUs

Maybe this happens because the results for Linux are just compiled with gcc without any optimization?
What about using ICC - which is the default M$ compiler and optimizes code for Intel CPUs and gives a great boost of performance (compared under Linux with gcc)?
