TL;DR: L4D on the same hardware...
Windows D3D: 270.6 FPS
Windows OpenGL: 303.4 FPS
Linux OpenGL: 315 FPS

Let me know how that goes for actual juggernauts like STALKER: Call of Pripyat, Metro 2033, Crysis 2, BF3, or Witcher 2.

315FPS is more like "I'm wasting GPU cycles so I can have a bigger e-penis" to me.

....now all they have to do is port a couple of thousand games over from windows to Linux....I just don't see that happening.

Here is the equation of how to factor all of these kinds of metrics.

x divided/multiplied by features

So FPS multiplied by features

Battery life multiplied by features

Durability multiplied by features.

Startup time divided by features

Linux has far fewer features than Windows 7(although that isn't always a bad thing), most speed metrics are therefore null and void.
