Your a little behind on the news.
The study was paid for by Mickeysoft, the NT machine was optimized and
Linux was not, etc, etc, etc...

Even Mickeysoft has come out a said the test was messed up.

This issue has bounced around on most of the lists and on Slashdot, check
slashdot archives for the stories.

I use NT on a P233 at work, and Linux on a P90 at home, trust me NT is not
faster.  My P90 smokes the P233.

Oracle just did some tests (I don't have the URL) and showed the exact
reverse results.  That Linux was faster by far.
