Ok then:

1. It's out of date (the obvious). This comes down to some of the
information being completely incorrect as far as featuresets, and just
looks embarrassing in other respects because it's using Windows 2000
as a comparison (it's a 10 year old OS).
2. Broken links.
3. The smiley icons are very unprofessional.
4. There's a lot of wasted horizontal space on the webpage.
5. There's no data to back up some of the claimed observations (what
version of FreeBSD, Linux, Windows were used; what performance metrics
were obtained; how things were tuned; etc).
6. Some of the data (example: the SQL error text under "Performance"
in the Windows column) is in the wrong spot, s.t. it distracts
readers. If anything it belongs in the footnotes.
7. The breakdown is too terse. Execs and business types like looking
at bullet points; the technical folks like looking at things in more
gross detail.
