Andybody compared Idea speed on different OS?

Hi all,

Has anybody done any unofficial speed comparisons of IntelliJ Idea running
under windows versus running under Solaris/Linux?

I'm sure there are benchmarks out there for how the VM's themselves perform
under the differing OS's, but it's performance of the "full IntelliJ Idea
dev platform" I'm interested in.

I'm considering upgrading my dev PC (currently running Win XP), but am
wondering if the grass is any greener "over there".

Cheers,
Ian

I have tried IDEA on both Windows and Linux and to my untrained eye, it
seems faster in Linux (RedHat9.0, 2.4GHz P4, 1GB RAM)
