FreeBSD "The next major update of FreeBSD 7, due this December, is in the running to be one of the most impressive FreeBSD releases to date. The ULE scheduler has now reached maturity, leading to significant gains across the board (particularly in server workloads). This new scheduler brings notably impressive performance improvements to both MySQL and PostgreSQL. In the first section of this article, I'm going to take a look at what's new. In the second section, I will discuss what the future holds for FreeBSD beyond the upcoming FreeBSD 7.0 release, including screen shots of the revamped FreeBSD installer 'finstall'."

Kris' benchmarks were up to date until FreeBSD 7 was released He cannot test for future releases!

But according to this, 2.6.22, released 8 months ago, also trashes FreeBSD 7.

If you u like to compare new stuff (like 2.6.25-rc4) then you must try FreeBSD 8

What is the planned release date of FreeBSD 8 again? I can't quite remember what the plan is on that. 2.6.25 is planned for sometime between April and June.
