FreeBSD "The next major update of FreeBSD 7, due this December, is in the running to be one of the most impressive FreeBSD releases to date. The ULE scheduler has now reached maturity, leading to significant gains across the board (particularly in server workloads). This new scheduler brings notably impressive performance improvements to both MySQL and PostgreSQL. In the first section of this article, I'm going to take a look at what's new. In the second section, I will discuss what the future holds for FreeBSD beyond the upcoming FreeBSD 7.0 release, including screen shots of the revamped FreeBSD installer 'finstall'."

>Linux kernel 2.6.25-rc4 was the Linux version tested

Maybe with the kernel release it will be even better, maybe it will be worse. Linux is always a developer snapshot since they abolished stable and developer kernels.

>The Linux kernel used is not a "stable release" whereas FreeBSD is (although I'm not aware of any significant performance improvements over the 2.6.24 kernel

--from the benchmark

But maybe there are heavy bugs in the .24 kernel?

C'mon this is no stable release, you should really nobody with a sane mind would use such kernel in production! Yeah apart from some desktop users (hello Windows) :->

Have a look at Debian, guess why they are using no bleeding edge kernel? Because _you_ and every other user of bleeding edge kernels are the beta tester!

But don't be to tearful, there is a life after the flame ;)

As you can see here, the ultimative truth about Linux and BSD *g*
