11-Way Linux, BSD Platform Comparison
Phoronix: 11-Way Linux, BSD Platform Comparison
Building upon last month's eight-way Linux vs. BSD operating system comparison, out today is an expanded 11-way OS showdown. The new OS test results available are for the Arch-based Manjaro Linux distribution, Debian GNU/Linux, and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. The other competitors include PC-BSD, DragonFlyBSD, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Mageia, and openSUSE.
And where are some competitors in last benchmarks?
I fail to see 11 competitors in last benchmarks. Yet no comments. I can imagine BSDs were out of luck for gaming and multimedia due to crappy video drivers. But why there was no pgbench? Have all BSDs failed it as well? Or someting?
Linux with alternative userland
Since I am currently investigating it, I would like to see how Alpine linux performs (uClibc and busybox instead of glibc and gnu coreutils). Considering that the GNU userland has a performance impact on top of the FreeBSD kernel, I suppose an alternative userland on top of Linux could be interesting to investigate too.
