There are other things that should be considered, specially when you compare two different hardwares. For example, I know there are some DELL servers being sold with disk controller with *no cache*! This would be terrible (regarding performance) when running a database server.
So, the Windows cache problem is not the only factor that needs to be considered for differences in performance. The only 100% correct way of blamming the OS in your case, would be installing Win 7 in that same machine running Win2008, and compare.

I think you might be referring to my post re the Operating Systems. If you are, we have indeed tried exactly what you said. Loaded Win 7 onto that same machine (Xeon), same database, and indeed the resulting performance was on spec with what we would have expected on a machine of that spec.
