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.

RE[3]: please..

Oh well.. I don't see him spreading FUD in there. He clearly says that he doesn't know *BSD and that he thinks those discussions are pointless..

Maybe he didn't exactly FUD, still went ranting on how BSD is crap (the usual shtick: he doesn't like it, ergo it's shit), just to finally admit that he actually doesn't have a clue about it.

Thanks, but I don't want to like that guy or take him serious.
