Fedora, Debian, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSolaris Benchmarks
Fedora 12 shined with PostMark as well, where it was more than three times faster than the second-place OS, Debian GNU/Linux, followed closely by OpenSolaris. The *BSDs really struggle with PostMark where OpenBSD 4.6 ended up running at only 49 transactions per second and FreeBSD 7.2/8.0 both were about 56 TPS.
For Sudokut, the Sudoku solving benchmark, Debian GNU/Linux was the fastest followed immediately by Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, OpenSolaris, FreeBSD 8.0, and then Fedora 12. Results for FreeBSD 7.2 and OpenBSD 4.6 were not available.
MAFFT had not run with OpenBSD and OpenSolaris, but the competition was fierce in this computational biology benchmark between Fedora 12 and the two Debian distributions.
