PC-BSD 8.0 vs. Kubuntu 9.10 Benchmarks
PC-BSD 8.0 delivered a much higher memory throughput performance than Kubuntu 9.10 with the Stream system memory benchmark.
EXT4 in Kubuntu 9.10 did much better than PC-BSD 8.0 with multiple-thread writes in the Threaded I/O Tester.
In a majority of the tests, Kubuntu 9.10 performed better than PC-BSD 8.0, but the tests we used in this article are just a subset of what is available to run on both platforms via the Phoronix Test Suite so for those deciding between running PC-BSD / FreeBSD it is important to run the tests relevant to you and also consider the other features at hand for both free software operating systems.
