You are correct that variance in the I/O throughput of the network adapters will not vary significantly between systems, but the software managing the OS's use of the Hard Disk does vary significantly. A slower disk I/O introduced by an Operating System will result in a lower apparent connection speed as reported by an application. I apologize for not being more precise in my wording.

You cannot say that with even a little bit of certainty. Operating system easily can make a difference. I have personally seen it many times, as I'm sure many others have too
