So it looks as though, for any sort of substantial score, turnaround time will be markedly reduced by using 64-bit Linux.

Thanks for all the comparisons, Nick, that was very interesting. If I understand the history of LilyPond correctly, it is a Linux application ported to Windows and OS X. So it's not surprising that it's faster on the various Linux OSes. Maybe someday I'll get around to buying an Intel Mac and can install all three OSes on their own partitions and do a comparison that way.

I use LilyPond on a 1.33 gHz PPC iBook with 1 GB RAM, called from Carbon Emacs (GNU Emacs 22.2.1 (powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)) and while LP is no speed demon, there are a *lot* of calculations and processes happening and I don't expect a score to be rendered in 3 seconds.
