>I briefly ran FreeBSD 4.5 on my laptop a few years ago and recently OpenBSD 4.0, both of which didn't perform as well despite the better security they have out of the box.

OpenBSD is only about security. FBSD 4.x did better in performance than Linux 2.4.x kernel. But FBSD4.x != FBSD5.x != 6.x != 7. In the end Linux 2.4 != 2.6. So this saying "I briefly ran .... few years ago" doesn't prove anything nowadays.
