    And Google and YouTube are powered by Linux.

    Netflix is powered by FreeBSD. Anyway, you're the only one who sounds like a fanboy.

    Except the Apache benchmark isn't done properly and PHP one is meaningless when comes to web server performance. When comes to SQLite XFS or Ext 3 should perform much better. LAMP (no BAMP) is de facto standard from some reason. Do you compile PHP every time you deal with peers? I bet longer compile time usually means better performance. When comes to web server performance there's no doubt Linux is better:

    Linux powers most demanding sites like google, youtube, facebook. If you have some evidence freebsd is better in this area I'm dying to see it. In recent years no single bsd fanboy was able to show it.

    Of course....one has to wonder....if the BSD's are indeed more stable over time than the typical Linux's, would any speed increase a Linux distro might have matter if something crashes and your speed is exactly zero? Then again....if you can't find an app you need on BSD but you can on Linux then also what's the point in a little bit extra stability ? Obviously FreeBSD has a great Portage system and I can hardly NOT find something for FreeBSD that is already on Linux. But there are gaps and sometimes compiling a Linux app to FreeBSD is a pain in the ass. Your mileage may vary of course.

    All in all.....you pick your tool for the job at hand. And what's great is we have in both the BSD's and Linux's a plethora of Free and Open Source tools to choose for the right job. And they're getting better every single release.

    Really cool benchmark, I always like to see some Linux alternatives. If you find some spare time or interest, try out NetBSD on the next benchmark.

    Phoronix: Early Benchmarks Of FreeBSD 11.0 vs. DragonFlyBSD 4.6 vs. Linux Distributions

    Following last week's DragonFlyBSD 4.6 benchmarks I carried out a fresh comparison of FreeBSD 10.3 vs. FreeBSD 11.0 (Beta 4 at the time) along with the DragonFlyBSD results and a few of the popular Linux distributions. Here are those numbers.
