I would love to see a head to head Vista Vs Fedora!

Is there software that can accommodate my desires!?

(Here we are speaking strictly of a race between Fedora and vista, I 'll see to my other desires on my own...for now.":O}

For such a comparison to be relevant, you'd have to define the conditions very carefully. Windows and Linux are two completely different beasts, which means that where one excels, the other may be weak, and vice versa.

What this means is that even if you had a benchmark (like PCMark) that ran on both Windows and Linux and even if you had both operating systems on the same machines, you would see very different results that might be more reflective of compiler or coding differences than actual OS differences.

It doesn't have to be accurate, it just has to show Fedora as being faster and prettier than Vista! How hard can that be!?

Well, Phoronix did a bench of WinXP, Vista, Fedora Core 6, Cedega 6, and Wine 0.9.32 about 1 1/2 years ago: [Phoronix] Cedega 6.0 Performance Preview

The upshot of THAT benchmark (using FRAPS with Quake: Enemy Territory and Doom 3) was that Linux trounced Vista and either beat, or came very close to beating XP.
