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.

I'm just happy with the performance improvements of FreeBSD, as a user of it. If Linux is faster or better at some workload, well, let's use it as a good measure and try to achieve better performance.

This competition is GOOD for both projects. FreeBSD 5.x-6.x stablished a rock solid base for the future.
