FreeBSD "Since the conclusion of the SMPng project, the focus of SMP development in FreeBSD has shifted from deploying locking infrastructure to careful profiling and optimization of kernel SMP strategies for increased performance on common workloads. FreeBSD 7.0 was the first release to benefit from this optimization work." The status of this work includes MySQL workload benchmarks and memory allocator performance in the new FreeBSD 8 branch. Also, here is a recent presentation showing FreeBSD compared to several other operating systems like NetBSD, DrangonFly, Solaris, and Linux.

Most real programmers do not look at websites, it's something for the enduser at the desktop.

Even so; if they're not going to update it, why have it? A 'real programmer' is that the same thing as a 'real Scotsman Fallacy'? come on, if you're a programmer or an end user, the first point of contact is the website, if no one can be bothered communicating information to the public via their front, then why even take an interest in either using the product or contributing to it.
