comment Is PostgreSQL suited to one OS? Is it better on Linux than Windows?
I did do side-by-side comparisons of PostgreSQL on Windows versus Linux in the old 8.1 and 8.2 days. For our load Linux was about 50% faster. It's not clear how much of that was just the networking, though, because clients were on a separate box and using the same Java code to test raw network throughput on an open connection ran 30% faster when both sides were Linux than when both sides were Windows. Interestingly, when one side was Linux and one was Windows it was 15% slower than both sides Linux.
