FreeBSD "FreeBSD is back to its incredible performance and now can take advantage of multi-core/CPUs systems very well... So well that some benchmarks on both Intel and AMD systems showed release 7.0 being faster than Linux 2.6 when running PostreSQL or MySQL. Federico Biancuzzi interviewed two dozen developers to discuss all the cool details of FreeBSD 7.0: networking and SMP performance, SCTP support, the new IPSEC stack, virtualization, monitoring frameworks, ports, storage limits and a new journaling facility, what changed in the accounting file format, jemalloc(), ULE, and more."

KoDus to all FreeBSD devs on this fantastic JOB! I must say that I have never been happier to use FreeBSD. This released is just solid as a rock ;) I am already using it in production and it is fast, stable, and easy to manage ;)

I urge anyone who hasn't tried FreeBSD before to give it a shot ;)
