Default Linux SMP client VS Windows SMP client.

I'm considering installing linux for my everyday usage, I don't game much and I've always been a fan of linux.
How is the SMP linux client? Does it support a3 units? Which client completes more units a day, which one contributes more for the project? I don't care about points...

Thanks.

Theyre are a different client but do the same cores/work.

You won't see a difference.

You can use wine to run the gpu if you wish.
