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.

"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."

I'm talking about the SPARC and I did not make up benchmarks, go research it yourself. FreeBSD performs better on than Linux in scalability --its widely known but its expected linux will exceed that due to its rapid development.

Go look for yourself. It's better than you search the internet yourself for this information because 1) i dont have the time 2) it will give you a better understanding on the performance from a variety of benchmarks and tests rather than a biased one.

I was just browing this article and saw this and decided to reply. Now, its time for me to get back to work. Because you know, customers are #1 not sitting around trying to pull of thousands of documents prooving what you said is wrong. Oddly enough, It appears your information came from less than thin air... That's all I have to say.
