    But shortly afterwards the idiotic stuff started again....

    and again....

    and again...

    no matter that almost all tests show that linux is superior....
    What's wrong with you? The test is flawed.

      I love it.

      Quality pamperment!

        Also this is a benchmark - not a test nor a real life experience.
        Well, that's no excuse. The benchmark is still completely useless. I *do* expect of them to do another run after both OSes are released.

          As has been said, such will be done for the large OS comparison.

            This particular benchmark is about as useless as pitting to sports cars together but having one pulling a truck of computer equipment behind it plugged in to every diagnostic port on it.

            It doesn't show FreeBSD is slower than Linux, all it is is utterly pointless. RCs of most OSs (Ubuntu is a bit of an exception here rather than the norm) have so many debug flags and stuff set which use so much CPU time that it's stupid to benchmark it.

              why? FreeBSD has debug on?

              AFAIK Ubuntu prerelase too. So the test is valid.

              But that does not change the fact that FreeBSD looses even when only comparing releases. So either way, FreeBSD looses.

                yeah, FreeBSD the truck. More like, FreeBSD the broken bicycle.

                  I don't think FreeBSD should be compared with Ubuntu. It's not fair for Linux since Ubuntu is a desktop distro, not the first choice for servers and workstations.

                    Uhm, that's 2006, and FreeBSD 6.x. You clearly don't know much about FreeBSD.
                    FreeBSD went through huge changes in the design in 5.x, which made it actually slower than 4.x, AFAIR. But, since then it was improved constantly, with each release.

                    This is a more recent benchmark, targeted on the SMP code:
                    http://people.freebsd.org/~kris/scaling/dfly.html

                    It is mostly a benchmark of FreeBSD versions and DragonflyBSD, but Linux kernels were used too. Now, that particular Linux kernel is rather old, so I expect some changes in newer releases, but still I hope it will shut you up for now.

                    I honestly expect better results from 8.0 RELEASE, compared to 7.2 RELEASE, knowing how careful the guys from FreeBSD are with the releases.

                      I'm looking forward to it.
