    Do you know that the biggest use of BSD is running Servers which host pr0n?
    Great, they usually serve the highest amount of traffic. I bet Linux geeks are the biggest users.

    Calling kernel a hybrid is inane, because most of modern OS's can be called hybrid by definition. It is meaningless.

    Would be interested in seeing some benchmarks of this new release against other BSDs and Linux other than those for Postgres.

    It doesn't have to be.
