    I do agree with you, but I thought the context is rather clear, this being a thread for discussions about the results of the Phoronix's benchmarks.
    Besides, if you want to compare the performance of...

    That's why I'd really like to see a new benchmark. Unfortunately I simply don't have the HW necessary for it at my disposal to do it myself.

    Thanks for the explanation. And yes, I usually use bare metal, but on the other hand I'm not dealing with lots of servers and neither with high performance hw.

    Anyway, if you ever get them up and...

    Comparing a benchmark ran in a VM with one ran in the host OS is completely pointless.
    If you really want to do the benchmark yourself, you'd have to install both OSes directly on the hardware, no...

    Actually, as far as I can tell there is only one guy in this thread fighting like his life depends on Ubuntu being faster and you can easily spot him :). Everyone else has a good sense of logic and...

    Oh, but there is alot of FreeBSD documentation. One just needs to read. For instance:

    The Handbook:

    Prerelease versions are not for production use, therefore the performance is less important, while finding stability issues is much more important.
    Besides, a FreeBSD developer can always compile a...

    So, there were a bunch of messages (including from myself) about this, without actually checking it. I just installed FreeBSD 8.0RC1 in Qemu, and AFAICT the debugging options aren't enabled....

    FreeBSD 7.2 kernel with and without debugging options

    OK, just to show how big the difference in performance can be between a kernel with and one without the debugging options, I ran a buildworld on FreeBSD 7.2 (not 8.0, because it's the only one I...

    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...

    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.

    Loss of time

    This benchmark is a complete loss of time, at least from the FreeBSD perspective. Benchmarking a BETA or RC version of FreeBSD is at best stupid for a very simple reason:
