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.

>but when was the last time some Linux kernel developer came out and posted a benchmark where FreeBSD didn't do so well?

Oh I forgot something? There is at least always a developer of Linux who spreads FUD about other operating systems. But in the end I wouldn't post a benchmark at all being a Linux developer, because we could actually see the real 'performance'.

There:

http://www.linux.com/articles/45571

or there too:

'I claim that Mach people (and apparently FreeBSD) are incompetent idiots. '

http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0604.2/1219.html

So please stop the FUD if something like Linux is actually made by childish developers. You will _not_ find such an infancy in *BSD!
