Whatever you do, don't use bemchmarks to compare Linux with other OS, Linux 

A benchmark tries to do something completed and then get the time for that but 
I've seen Linux to try it's best to prevent this completed set of actions to 
happen withing a known time.

If I unpack the linux kernel sources on Solaris and UFS using star (that by 
default calls fsync() for each file) everything is stable on disk when star 

If you do the same on Linux/ext3 with gnu tar, gtar finishes 10-30% faster than 
star  does on Solaris but on Linux almost nothing is on disk at that time.

If you like to compare, I recommend to use gtar or star -no-fsync to unpack the 
linux kernel sources and to pull the mains plug after the tar extract seems to 
be ready (the next prompt is displayed). Then reboot and compare what you have 
on disk an whether the filesystem on disk is still usable.
