One should ask a question: why do they even care to provide kfreebsd kernel? It's so typical for bsd fanboys and trolls: bsd is faster! Benchmarks show it's not. So, bsd is more safe! Reality show it's not. So, it must be more stable! Again, reality show it's not. The last two things cannot be proven easily, but if it was more safe and stable it would be used in the most demanding workloads and environments where security is a priority. Nothing like this has place.
    Linux is generally faster than FreeBSD , safer no, just take at the number of linux CVE's , is much bigger than BSD cve's .

      Hey, kraftman. What's up?

        It's FAST file system because, at the time it was developed (early 80's, in 4.2BSD), it was quite a significant advance in file systems technologies.

          You would have to lack a brain to think that i386reaper, LinuxANALSBSD and OpenSLOWARIS aren't the same person.
          They both raise the same flawed points, both lack a grasp of basic grammar and spelling, both use profanity on a SFW forum when there is literally no need, both show an intense bias towards copyleft software in any and all circumstances and both flock to threads with Solaris, BSD, Hurd, Minix and other *nix-like systems with the intent to mock and insult the participants in those threads and derail any prior discussion taking place.
          There have been many iterations of the same user under different accounts and by some means of mental deficiency they keep coming back regardless of how many prior accounts get banned.
          I suppose they get a kick out of trolling and losing arguments, but that sort of mentality should be left at 4chan, not brought here.

            And copyleft is the only ethical thing. Proprietary is unethical and CopyFree is far more unethical. Case closed.
            Oh, and this person will also try to imitate other's usernames to spread confusion, CuIIuthx and Vim_LUser were the big offenders as well as my own with inteIIivision.
            In a way I feel honoured that my username was worthy of you to drag through the mud, but in the future you should come up with some original ideas for a change

              A benchmark on a different system today showing GNU/kFreeBSD ahead of Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora and PC-BSD in a couple of places:
              Great, it's benchmarked against old Linux kernel.

              That's actually pretty cool; GNU/kFreeBSD as a whole has had almost no work done to optimize for speed yet. Some tools that would help with this have not been packaged yet.
              What additional optimizations should they do? It's FreeBSD kernel which is being optimized since twenty years.

              The default plain UFS filesystem operates in the safest possible mode, without write cache or journalling and that could be a major bottleneck on slower disks. Maybe that's why it performed better here, on an SSD. This is likely to change soon to UFS+softupdates or UFS+J, and should be an easy performance boost for the next release.
              Great, so you're thinking disabling journaling makes it safer? It's really unfair to benchmark UFS against modern file systems.

                It seems there's something wrong with you. Did anyone of us killed your cat or something? Or perhaps, your brain was destroyed in some discussion or there are other reasons? Or, maybe you're just one of the BSD or slowlaris trolls?

                  And now you're are marked as a junior member and your post count was lowered to four. BSD folks don't tolerate such betrayals.

                    It's because Linux has far more drivers and file systems. If we take only parts of Linux you're running on your computer number of CVE's will be much lower. Furthermore, Linux has more security mechanisms.

                      I had to change emails and get new accounts because I've been getting a lot of hate mail and death threats from OpenBSD people for saying that I switched. I really am not feeling safe now.

                      Also, my previous phoronix account was hacked so I can't access it now.
                      to my impersonator: you've been reported.

                      kraftman: this is a new account, not registered by me, hence the lower post count and different username. What on earth could BSD users do to a Phoronix account? How could they possibly lower the post count?

                      The account was created with the deliberate intention of causing trouble. If somebody has a problem with their account the logical thing to do is to email the administrator, not to create a new account that is suspiciously similar to the last one and radically change one's views.

                        I thought you've deleted your account and registered a new one.

                          Nah, just hadn't logged in for a day or two, still here, and still like BSD (or at least I will again once they get UEFI sorted...) :-)

                          "archibaId": I concur, let's ask the admins to sort this out.

                            Oh please, everyone's over this childish roleplay. You're not fooling anybody, unless you would like to support it with hard evidence.

                                Please don't argue with this guy, it makes it slightly more difficult to figure out who's who, and leaves more of a mess after I delete his posts. Just use the report "!" link at the bottom left of posts.
