:> Generally, a fair test on a level playing field.

Well then, you need to find hardware that is equally agreeable, or as
close to equally agreeable as you can get, to _all_ operating systems.
Running the tests on different hardware just gives the critics
one more thing to be critical of.

I don't belive that you can have a "level playing field" without the
same hardware.
