Debian 7.0 GNU/Linux vs. GNU/kFreeBSD Benchmarks
Last December I ran the benchmarks for the extensive Debian Linux vs. Debian kFreeBSD With Squeeze & Wheezy testing. The results today remain largely the same but another round of benchmarks was carried out on a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop using the official Debian 7.0 release images that were released at the beginning of May.
Debian Linux 7.0 uses the Linux 3.2 kernel while Debian kFreeBSD 7.0 uses the FreeBSD 9.0.2 kernel. The user-lands were basically the same across each Debian release and all testing happened from a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 CPU with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. All of the system hardware/software details, logs, and benchmark results are hosted on OpenBenchmarking.org within 1306092-UT-KFREEBSDD77.
Up next will be Debian GNU/Hurd benchmarks where it's the Hurd kernel atop Debian's user-land. For now I have some older Hurd performance benchmarks from 2011.
