Operating speed: the only reason against choosing Magento?

We are developers, and have been test driving Magento as a replacement system to Actinic for our future eCommerce websites. We love all the features, the license, and the code framework. We don’t love the slow speed.

We expect our clients biggest problem, with any Magento powered site we provide them, will be the Administration speed.

Even using the Magento demo Admin, which we would expect to be running on an optimised server, is slow. We even tried using different browsers and using it at different times of the day in case of high traffic.

I would be interested if anyone has been able to benchmark test Magento properly, and also compare it to osCommerce.
