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'."

Release date aside i agree an interesting review. On the FreeBSD.org website there is a link for one of the few 'news' stories on the FreeBSD 7 release.

Not much in the way of deep feature review but kinda interesting to get some FreeBSD developers comments about who they compete against and other businessy kind of things.

here's a link : http://www.internetnews.com/dev-news/article.php/3731386
