    Maybe they're less demanding on some devices? There's also possibility there are no reasons to migrate from 2.4 to 2.6. Btw. 2.4 performance should be much worse then 2.6 on PC's etc.

    the example I know personaly very well is DSL Linux which refuses to use kernel 2.6 because the image is a bit bigger.

      Oh yes. This is probably why 2.4 is chosen over 2.6 on some embedded systems.

        • Would be nice if you test FreeBSD + UFS and FreeBSD + ZFS..

            Yes! OpenBSD benchmarks will not hurt anyone..
            If the number of operating systems become too big to a single test, phoronix can do a separated test with all the BSD variants.

              Actually one thing I would kind of like to see is the wine benchmarks ran with the Linux Unified Kernel and see if there is any performance difference using it instead of wine.

              Yes! I really want to see if this makes any difference as well. The idea of a WINE kernel module really seems like it could boost performance.

              • I am looking forward to the comparisons and appreciate whatever you are able to put together. It was some of the earlier comparisons that brought me here in the first place, so keep 'em up!
