It seems that Linux may still be a little more efficient than Vista on most loads (but not Firefox) but back in the nifty nineties Linux was a _lot_ more efficient than Windows. In short, Linux has been getting worse faster than Windows.
I am not sure if I agree with that. I am writing this on a Dell laptop with a 1GHz CPU and 512MB of memory. It is a pain to use on Windows XP, and I wouldn't dare try to put Vista on it. But latest version of Ubuntu trundles along quite nicely. There are a few applications that struggles; like eclipse; but they struggled 3 years ago too.
