Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

"Oh yeah, and Linux dosent run well on alot of 64 systems and alot of the 64 bit systems like like solaris run slow on 32 bit systems... example..

64-bit - Linux vs. FreeBSD vs. Solaris
Winners are 1) Solaris 2) FreeBSD 3) Linux

well..well, well"

I have data that disputes your rankings. See here:

64bit: Linux vs. FreeBSD vs. Solaris

1. Linux
2. FreeBSD
3. Solaris

As you can clearly see, I can make up rankings as well! Come talk to me when you have some REAL comparisons to show as proof, OK? If you don't I'll just assume that you pulled your rankings from thin air.
