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.

After the original 8-way Linux/BSD comparison was published, based upon feedback from Phoronix readers and Twitter followers are results for the Arch-based Manjaro 0.8.5 Linux distribution and then Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD 7.0. The benchmarking happened from the same Intel Core i7 3960X "Sandy Bridge" Extreme Edition platform used for the earlier tests.

As usual, the same configuration was used throughout and the stock packages/settings for each platform were tested. It's quite straightforward and all operating systems were tested in a fully automated and reproducible manner using our open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software. It's simple so let's get right to the results.
