When people compare a JPEG to a RAW file online, as in this case, it's generally accepted by most that the RAW is opened and saved as a JPEG without any user modifications. This gives a good basic comparison to the OOC JPEG results (which are also assumed to have not been manipulated) an the OOC RAW.
If you read the accompanying article, this should be pretty obvious.
Of course RAW doesn't always mean 'raw' in strict terms as manufactures manipulate the raw data in different ways, and it's long been said Fuji apply NR to theirs. But that's for another topic.

Of course, all RAW processors are actually manipulating the RAW data in some way and give different looks. BTW, I've never understood the idea of "in camera" RAW processing. Does that yield a different jpeg than the regular jpeg processing or just allow you to process a few as jpegs if you want, to save time and space?

Daniel,

I think the in camera processing is pretty neat. If you shoot RAW or RAW+JPG, you can make as many jpgs as you want with different settings (film settings, NR, Color, WB, etc). Of course you could also do this in post, but it is quick and simple to make a monochrome red filter and a color version before importing to your favorite image editor.

To add to the RAW discussion, if the same RAW file is opened in Aperture, Lightroom, Silkypix, Photoshop and others, ALL with minimal adjustments applied, they will not look the same! Opening a RAW file IS demosaicing the data into color and tone pixels. These processors all do it differently. Hance the Lightroom vs Silkypix threads ad-nauseum.
