I'm curious why Linux and Windows results differ by quite a large margin:

This is the same PC. Both tests have been run on a completely idle PC with next to zero background applications aside from system services. Windows performance profile was set to High Performance. I even changed Windows geekbench process priority to realtime - all to no avail.

Do you really use the same compiler for these two OS'es? If not, do you intend to? Otherwise your results between these two desktop OSes cannot be directly compared.
