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.

With the help of Nokia,

"Lately I've been able to spend a bunch of time on ULE thanks to Nokia. They use it in one of their networking products. I've been doing all of this work in 8.0-CURRENT and backporting it for them at the same time. It's a great model for both parties because users on -CURRENT shake out bugs that they'd have to find in testing otherwise and we get new development paid for."
